Headquartered in Los Angeles with regional offices in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, and New Jersey, CEI is an established national developer and investor in sustainable, institutional-quality properties, with an emphasis on housing. Winter Properties is a vertically integrated real estate investment, management, and development company that focuses on strategic investments and ventures throughout major urban markets in the U.S. The new partnership enhances the breadth of CEI’s capabilities to meet housing needs at all levels of the economic spectrum.

"With the nation facing a critical housing shortage, it is imperative that we build as much quality housing as we can at every price point, from affordable, to workforce, to market rate, to luxury," stated Sorochinsky. "Leveraging our development expertise and Winter’s investment acumen and financial strength will allow us to accelerate our pace of growth in major cities across the United States."

CEI’s current pipeline of 2021-2022 starts totals over $1.75 billion in capitalization. With the new partnership, CEI expects to increase output by more than 50%.

New York-based Winter Properties brings its global scale, reach and know-how to the new venture. "At Winter, we seek out development partners that not only share our core values, but also demonstrate a keen understanding of local market dynamics and proven ability to deliver best-in-class properties, and CEI clearly meets these criteria," said Rick H. Singer, President of Winter Properties.

"This catalytic partnership can best be described as two industry leaders with complementary expertise working together to enhance the capabilities of each company, empowering the team to better capitalize on market opportunities," said Sorochinsky. "Both firms also share a desire to build sustainable communities that are respectful and sensible to the neighborhoods in which they reside."

Already, the partnership has invested in multifamily development and value-add projects in Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver, and New Jersey.
