WILMINGTON, Del. and PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 10, 2020 -Corten Real Estate Partners LLC (“Corten”) is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with GCM Grosvenor to create a $50 million separate account (the “Separate Account”) that will further Corten’s strategy of pursuing special situation and distressed investment opportunities involving multifamily, hospitality and office properties in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Separate Account will be complementary to Corten’s commingled funds and invest where they may be capital constrained or facing concentration risks.

Going forward, Corten and GCM Grosvenor intend to build upon the success of the Separate Account and create a broader strategic partnership.
