Champion Real Estate Company (“Champion”) was founded in 1987 by veteran developer and CEO, Bob Champion. Based in West Los Angeles, the company specializes in value-add investing and development in urban-infill areas. Champion has expertise in multifamily, retail, office, mixed-use, adaptive re-use of industrial buildings, and historic renovations.
Champion’s investment strategy is to acquire infill properties in “A” locations within markets that are core, core adjacent or gentrifying to core, and implement value accretive improvements to achieve above-market returns.
To date, Champion has completed projects valued in excess of $1 billion and 2.5 million square feet. Champion typically invests on an asset-by-asset basis which then aggregates into a diversified real estate portfolio over a series of property investments. Champion invests on its own account and in partnership with select high net worth individuals, family offices, and institutions.
The Company has been lauded for its commitment to quality, award-winning design and community outreach. Our projects have received national recognition and awards including multiple ICSC Maxi Awards for its shopping centers, multiple Builder Magazine Gold Nugget awards for its multifamily, mixed- use, and transit oriented projects, a NAHRO award for one of its public-private partnerships and an award from the California Historic Preservation Society for one of its historic renovations.
