Our Story

Founded in 2012, Starwood Retail Partners is not your father’s – or grandfather’s – landlord. Now the fifth largest owner of regional malls in the United States, we acquire malls and lifestyle centers that dominate their markets, and invest our creativity and funds to reinvent the retail experience for a new generation.

Why Starwood Retail?
Our name says it all. A division of Starwood Capital Group, we’re privately held and can pursue the new and innovative, and use our parent company’s financial strength to make quick decisions about investing in centers, programs and people. That young and enthusiastic attitude is balanced by our leaders’ decades of experience in the retail real estate industry.

We’re also the only major shopping center owner and manager with both the words “Retail” and “Partners” in our name. We’re more than just property owners – we understand that we are curators and nurturers of today’s and tomorrow’s stores, services and experiences. We look for the unexpected, and have designed innovative and flexible leasing and marketing programs to draw the best possible tenants for our guests. We’re not afraid to experiment, and work with our partners, be they retailers, services, arts institutions and corporate offices, to succeed together.

Our Philosophy
We remember that retail is fun! The result is that our industry isn’t static, and neither are our properties. We acquire dominant properties in smaller markets, and projects poised for future growth in larger markets. And then we employ creative leasing, marketing and long-term investment to maximize their value for our investors and communities.

Our Markets
Our centers are located in some of the largest and most exciting markets in the United States, from New England to Southern California, Miami to Washington state. Our portfolio spans 11 of the top DMAs in the nation, as well as the dominant centers in rapidly growing secondary markets. 

Our Community
At Starwood Retail Partners, we believe we’re part of many communities, and give something back to all. Our centers host events and fundraisers, and work with other area businesses to create a healthy community for our guests and neighbors. Our executives are leaders in the retail and real estate industries. We know we’re at our best when we work together for a common goal.

After all, “Partners” is our last name.
