Background on Lionstone Investments

Lionstone is a privately owned real estate investment firm that specializes in conceptualizing, researching, and executing national investment strategies on behalf of institutional investors and high net worth individuals. Lionstone bases its investment strategies on proprietary data, research and ideas centered on the ownership of real estate that serves the most productive segments of the US economy.

The firm’s advanced analytics is applied to the selection of often obscure but highly valuable opportunities that typically go unseen in other investment firms. With this proprietary in-house approach, Lionstone Investments hunts for investments within certain internationally competitive cities where the most productive U.S. professional workers congregate. Lionstone’s advanced analytics isolates geographic areas and then drills down into submarkets and specific locations—revealing where the highest economic productivity and greatest demand for space exists relative to supply.
