Develop. Invest. Create value.
This is what we do every day—passionately—an approach that has given Levey its reputation of consistently over-delivering.
Levey has a long history of thinking differently.
Levey Group is an entrepreneurial commercial real estate company with a 40-year track-record of achieving outsized returns.
We appreciate flexibility and avoid formulaic thinking to maximize value.
We often recognize value others overlook. Our financial strength and expertise allow us to act decisively, quickly vet opportunities, and consistently generate good returns.
This legacy extends back to Gustave S. Levey (“Gus”), a business visionary across several industries, including industrial real estate development.
Gus developed nearly 100 properties throughout the Gulf Coast region until 1998, when he sold the development company along with a substantial portion of the portfolio, but his spirit of innovation remains in our DNA, literally and figuratively.
We are thankful for our business success and feel passionate about giving back to the communities we serve.
Gustave (Gus) Levey incorporates GSL Investments and begins developing single-tenant industrial warehouses.
GSL sells a substantial part of its real estate portfolio, the development company, and begins offering commercial real estate bridge, acquisition, and construction financing.
The company hires David Ebro, Gus’s grandson. Together, they invest in value-add real estate opportunities and funding high-yielding opportunistic CRE loans.
The company expands its value-add program, increasing the clear height of over 500,000 square feet of warehouse space, and converting numerous functionally obsolete buildings into income producing assets.
The company introduces the Levey Group moniker (as a d/b/a for GSL) before reentering the ground-up industrial development business.
The company begins working on several land assemblages, including Levey’s first business park, Northwest Place I, a Levey portfolio holding.
The company celebrates its 30-year anniversary.
Levey acquires 43 acres along the South Sam Houston tollway.
Levey completes development and leasing of Sam Houston Business Park, a 286,500 square foot development on the west Sam Houston Tollway.
Levey sells Sam Houston Business Park to institutional buyer for over $35,000,000, achieving the second highest per sf price in the greater metro area.
Levey expands its track-record of opportunistic acquisitions following the purchase of the 67 acres at the southeast corner of Beltway 8 and South Lake Houston Parkway.
Levey launches The Business Center at 5 Corners, a five building, 550,000 sf development situated on 43 acres, with over ½ mile of frontage along the South Sam Houston Tollway.
