We believe in cities – and we are dedicated to helping them thrive by developing new and re-purposed spaces in walkable, infill locations. We believe in Detroit – and we aim to play a positive role in the city’s continued growth and development.
Our investment strategy focuses on intimate knowledge of emerging neighborhoods. We use our local expertise to acquire property at a basis that allows for the creation of high-quality spaces at an attainable price point. Inkwell drives value by connecting underutilized, character-rich assets with the established urban fabric and working with local communities to create contextually-appropriate developments. Our disciplined approach allows us to effectively manage risk while providing long term growth for our investors and neighbors alike.
We target projects that are sized above the capacity of casual investors and below the realm of institutional players (~$1-20M asset size). We prefer to work with sites that have existing structures providing interim income and value-add or redevelopment potential, and we seek out well-built, distinctive, historic buildings with suitable dimensions for modernized renovation and conversion.
