DIRECT INVEST BELIEVES RESTORING COMMUNITIES IS BETTER THAN  DESTROYING THEM.

Direct Invest is an experienced, impact focused, and sustainable real-estate development  company with $3 Billion of projects currently underway. Direct Invest was formed to mine  value in underappreciated, disinvested urban communities that are preferably near mass  transit and anchor institutions while delivering attractive returns for its equity partners.

 

Direct Invest has a long-standing development track record of enhancing the economic,  environmental, social and cultural aspects of all constituents.

DIRECT INVEST’S VISION IS TO CREATE RESTORATIVE HUMAN SETTLEMENTS THAT FOSTER SELF ACTUALIZATION AND A QUALITY LIFESTYLE.

Our mission as stewards is to create a fabric of resilient communities and opportunity structures  by engaging sustainable resources and by leveraging key partnerships and innovative practices.

DIRECT INVEST IS UNIQUE IN ITS FOCUS ON THE RESTORATION OF URBAN  HUMAN SETTLEMENTS

We create a plan that is sequential, multi-dimensional, thorough,  and thoughtful while being attentive to the needs of:

  • Middle- and moderate-income households

  • Municipal leaders

  • Community advocates

  • Metropolitan transit organizations

  • Anchor institutions

THE PUBLIC APPRECIATES WHAT WE DO.

DIRECT INVEST ABIDES BY NINE PRINCIPLES DESIGNED AROUND HUMAN TRUTHS  AND WELL BEING.

  1. Ubuntu: Do No Harm

  2. There Is No Solution Without Financial, Human And Environmental Returns

  3. Use More Waste Than We Create

  4. Generate More Energy Than We Use

  5. Create More Wealth Than We Consume

  6. Deconstruct Human Barriers By Including More People Than We Exclude

  7. Do Not Export Capital From Underserved Communities

  8. Create Place That Enables Beneficial Human Activity
