Our Thesis

South Duvall invests in commercial real estate that contributes to a firm’s ability to create value. Assets that do this become vital to their tenants and will preserve value in the long term. Spaces that encourage collaboration, promote well being for a tenant’s employees, provide unique infrastructure necessary to a company’s mission or are in an area that clearly benefits its tenants, all contribute to a tenant’s ability to create value.
