Starwood Retail Partners, formed in 2012, is a shopping center asset management organization owned by Starwood Capital Group. We acquire, redevelop, lease, manage, and operate a portfolio which now includes 30 centers in 15 states across the U.S. Thanks to Starwood Capital Group’s excellent reputation and working alliances in capital markets, we partner exclusively with top-tier investment firms to help finance our properties.

The Retailers’ Partner

We take pride in the outstanding relationships we develop with our retailers, which start with Starwood’s trusted place in the retail community that our representatives have worked hard to earn.  We partner together with our retailers to ensure they are always in the right property at the right time. It’s a hands-on management approach that has been successful in delivering maximum return on our properties.
