Essex Capital is a private national real estate and development company founded in 1991 by Mitchell B. Rutter and headquartered in New York City. Blending substantial capital capabilities with an innovative entrepreneurial approach, Essex Capital acquires and invests in early-stage, distressed, and value-added development projects with a mission to create value for its partners and generate the highest possible returns on its investments.

Essex Capital has overseen a portfolio totaling more than 5 million square feet of property, in most major asset categories, and has been involved in acquisition and development transactions totaling more than $1 billion. With a keen ability to identify and reposition undervalued assets, Essex Capital has a reputation for taking on difficult projects that others won't, possessing the ability to move quickly and execute on complex deals using a variety of proven short- and long-term investment, development, and management strategies.

With a focus on the Northeast Corridor, Essex Capital has built, owned, operated, managed, and repositioned major urban office and multifamily residential buildings, shopping centers, retail plazas, and undeveloped land. Essex Capital aggressively pursues opportunities in which distressed real estate assets require additional investment and management expertise, and its principals have extensive leadership experience in the real estate sector, with particular skills in financing and acquisitions, development, asset repositioning, master planning and construction management, and public-private partnerships.

Essex Capital is very flexible and will acquire properties itself or in joint venture with financial institutions, funds or existing owners. Essex Capital continues to pursue relationships with investors and institutions seeking a fully integrated real estate company with diverse capabilities and skills in maximizing value.
