Celebrating 20 Years as One of the Region’s Most Accomplished Developers.

Hammer Ventures (HV) is recognized as an entrepreneurial leader in the development of high quality multifamily, mixed-use and office properties in first-class locations.  HV’s typical method of value creation begins with the acquisition and is achieved throughout the entire project lifecycle through hands-on capital placement, financial analysis, entitlement procurement, financial reporting, construction management, property management, marketing, leasing, and asset disposition.

At HV our Mission Maxim is “Building Lifestyle”.  Whether at work, home or having fun—if it is a “life”style or even “work”style experience then you have found an engaging and inspirational environment that makes living more fulfilling.  We approach the real estate design and experience planning for each project in a way to optimize this state.  Our success in this regard has been duly recognized with community, regional, state and national design awards such as Orchids, Gold Nuggets, Builders Choice Awards, etc.  Whether retail, apartment, condominium or office our projects routinely sell at record prices in some of the best locations in San Diego.


HV has developed prime urban properties in the cities of San Diego and Los Angeles.  It has also acquired and developed well-located suburban properties throughout San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial Counties.  We specialize in apartment, condominium and office projects and have ample experience in a broad range of mixed-use projects that typically contain multifamily housing.  Condominium, row home, apartment, retail, office, and mixed-use projects are all target development products for HV.  Below is a list of representative opportunities of interest:

  1. Complex land sites with entitlement, capitalization, tenancy or obsolescence issues
  2. Any value-add opportunity in a prime urban location
  3. Infill urban land for the new construction of housing, office or mixed-use development
  4. Existing apartments, urban office, or urban retail for renovation and repositioning
  5. Adaptive re-use opportunities


HV believes that excellent relationships with equity and debt partners are vital to the success of a real estate development program.  Integrity and transparency are deeply rooted in our operational culture.  Our progress and financial reporting meet the requirements of the most meticulous financial institutions.  HV welcomes strong partnership alignment and co-invests our own equity in every project with its private equity fund partners or high net worth investors.

Since our inception, we have worked with the most prominent institutional capital sources in the country for both equity and debt.  We manage projects, internal operations, partnership agreements, and relationships in a professional and straightforward manner that allows us to continue to thrive in an institutional capital environment and increasingly execute large and complex development projects.  To learn more, please use the password provided by HV to review further materials in the “Equity” and “Debt” links.


HV places emphasis on creating and maintaining strong broker relationships.  We recognize these relationships are instrumental to our continued success.  Brokers can expect transparency, professionalism, respect, and incentives when working with HV.  We are an active and competitive buyer of listed properties and reward off-market opportunities.

Closing is everything, and Hammer has a proven and impressive track record of efficiently closing transactions as small as $10,000,000 and as large as $200,000,000.  We would never have been able to acquire at such high volume over the last two decades without the confidence and preference of the brokerage community.
