Cypress Equities develops, operates, manages, and invests in retail, residential, mixed-use, and resort properties across the United States and offshore. Currently, the firm has more than $2 billion in projects with over 6 million square feet under development and management. The joint venture carries out an integrated analytical approach that applies a mixture of different specialties to define the value of real estate assets.
