Spear Street Capital is an owner and operator of distinctive office properties located in the United States, Canada and Ireland. We focus on assets and portfolios greater than $25 million in total value, targeting well conceived and located properties that can succeed through creative leasing efforts, physical improvements, entitlement changes or realization of adaptive re-use strategies. Properties may be located in both primary and secondary markets provided they possess, or can attain, superior appeal to quality tenants.
