LOS ANGELES—AECOM Capital, an affiliate of L.A.-based AECOM, launched in January 2013 with a vision to fund real estate development opportunities using a fund model. In a year and a half, the new investment company has committed $100 million of capital and launched six development projects worth $2.3 billion. Among those projects, four are located in Southern California, including the now famous project on six acres in Downtown Los Angeles’ South Park neighborhood. Although AECOM Capital has had some major success this year, few know about the still-new company and its innovative investment model. So, we sat down with the man behind the model and the investment decisions, AECOM Capital CEO, John Livingston.
