WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2016, Stoneweg US is an opportunistic real estate investment firm with a nationwide platform focused on the acquisition and development of multifamily assets. We seek to deliver attractive, risk-adjusted returns to our investors by identifying market opportunities and optimizing asset performance, all while improving the resident experience through a variety of value-add strategies. Through our affiliation with Stoneweg SA, a Swiss-based real estate company with over $3 billion in assets under management, Stoneweg US serves as the exclusive US investment manager of Varia US Properties AG, a Swiss publicly traded multifamily real estate fund (SIX Swiss Exchange ticker: VARN). Stoneweg US also partners with US and international equity investors to acquire and develop multifamily assets in markets with strong population growth and positive trending economic conditions. In 2020, Stoneweg US announced the formation of SW Fund I, an additional US-based investment fund targeting multifamily investments in emerging US Markets.
At Stoneweg US, environmental sustainability plays a key factor in creating the best apartment communities for our residents. Stoneweg US is committed to implementing sustainable practices that are pragmatic and achievable. We have successfully reduced our environmental footprint by repositioning older multifamily assets (rather than demolishing and rebuilding) and by developing new high-performance multifamily projects with a focus on reducing waste, energy and water use.
Given that many multifamily communities are older and are less energy efficient or have fewer sustainability features, there is a prime opportunity to improve sustainability and add value to our assets. Our water and energy conservation programs have significantly increased the environmental efficiency of our assets, while improving our residents’ quality of life and maximizing returns for our investors. In addition to reducing utility consumption, Stoneweg US is also focused on waste reduction. Those strategies include recycling programs at most properties in the Stoneweg US portfolio.
The Stoneweg US environmental sustainability goals are to:
Reduce current water consumption 15% by 2022
Reduce current energy consumption 20% by 2022
Invest in clean and renewable energy generation technologies, reducing emissions
Invest in green technologies that reduce energy and water use
