Real Estate

We continue to do what we have always done, buy and build Irreplaceable real estate in Texas.



Fifth Corner is founded by industry veterans and the former top executives of AmREIT, a New York Exchange Listed Company, that was contracted to be sold to Edens in 2014 (actual closing happened in 2015) at the top of the Houston market. Returns for investors during the time AmREIT was publicly listed exceeded 30% per annum.

Fifth Corner has been built upon the time tested principles of a 5-C Culture and a 5-D Investment Framework. The principals of Fifth Corner have worked together for over fifteen years and have created a track record of trust and stewardship that is among the best within its sector. Besides building a well-respected public company, we have successfully partnered with some of the most admired partners in the world including JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, AEW of Boston and other leading institutional, public and private investors.

Since the start of our journey 30 years ago, we have sought to buy the highest quality real estate – that which we felt was truly “Irreplaceable”. From the creation of AmREIT’s predecessor companies, to partnerships with Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan, to AmREIT’s listing on the New York Stock Exchange, to the ultimate sale of roughly $1B of real assets, our history and performance speak for itself. From NYSE listing to subsequent sale, our shareholders earned in excess of 30% returns per annum.

We utilize an approach steeped in ground level research, local relationships, and patient stewardship. The Five D’s provide a rigorous “hard-side” investment framework that allows us to define the highest quality assets:

  1. Demographic purchasing power
  2. Density of population
  3. Demand for retail space
  4. Desirability of physical layout
  5. Demarcation advantage

At the time of purchase, we have an executable vision and phased plan to create value upon that piece of property. We implement a number of strategies phased in succession that involve improving tenant mix, re-development, and densification. At the end of year 7, we typically see a significant uptick in NOI and a piece of real estate that has become even more Irreplaceable to the community.
