Schnitzer West, LLC is one of the Pacific Northwest's leading commercial real estate investment,
development, and management companies. Formed in 1997 by Managing Investment Partner Dan Ivanoff of Seattle
and Schnitzer Investment Corp. of Portland, Schnitzer West has a proven
of success. Building on its success in the northwest, Schnitzer West
owns additional properties in Denver and is exploring new market opportunities across the western United States.
Schnitzer West is strongly capitalized. With financial stability comes reliability and
predictability—for property sellers, lenders, equity partners and tenants. Schnitzer West's
partner is Schnitzer Investment Corp., headquartered
in Portland, Oregon. Over the past 60 years, Schnitzer Investment Corp. has made entrepreneurial
and disciplined capital investments in domestic and foreign public and private ventures.
Schnitzer West offers a powerful combination of creative, and entrepreneurial development
and investment expertise, coupled with the financial strength of a respected investment company.
The company is comprised of four business units (Development, Investments, Structured Capital, Asset Operations).
While each operates independently, our structure evokes collaboration and
creates synergies that ultimately deliver superior results.
Schnitzer West has a unique approach to property development that sets us apart from traditional,
institutional development companies. Our focus on value creation and risk management drives
our building design, our acquisition of real estate, our choice of markets—in short,
everything we do. And it leads to higher quality properties and superior-to-market returns.
Superior risk management
At Schnitzer West, we take risk management seriously. And because we do our homework, there's
less risk to manage. We start with research—at the deepest and broadest levels. Then we use
qualitative evaluation and quantitative modeling to understand the long-term impact of every
significant decision. We evaluate from every angle, assess every variable. So when it's time
to make a move, we do so with confidence—and often in ways others would not consider.
