Ventura Partners

Ventura Partners is a real estate development company that has brought an unconventional perspective to commercial real estate for over 20 years. Our specialized expertise in financing, construction, leasing and management of retail, office, art space and other special use properties supports our ability to be creative in our approach to the long-term success of our projects.

Ventura Partners began in 1995 as a small shop providing consulting and project management for nonprofit housing developers seeking expertise for their ground floor commercial space and development of retail incubators.  Kim Edmonds brought her private sector expertise in commercial development, financing and syndication to support the programming and financial sustainability of community serving projects.  In 2003 Ventura Partners opened its San Francisco office.

We partner in projects to enhance community infrastructure and incorporate programming that supports the long-term health of neighborhoods while strengthening opportunities for local ownership of assets and a competitive financial return for community investors. It’s a holistic approach that works in an industry too often focused on a single bottom line.

Since 2003 Ventura Partners has managed the development of 35 commercial projects in the Bay Area. Our property management portfolio includes over 200,000 square feet of commercial property, providing space to about 100 regional and small business tenants, nonprofits and arts groups.
