Catalyst Urban Development operates on the belief that truly successful urban and mixed-use development requires skill in the creation of memorable places, customized finance, and public/private collaboration. This combination of expertise has resulted in Catalyst’s leading portfolio of residential, mixed-use and transit-oriented developments.
The Catalyst team is proud to have received received multiple awards for its efforts including the Urban Land Institute (ULI) twice honoring Catalyst with its prestigious Impact Award, the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) giving Catalyst its Pillars of the Industry Award, the National Development Council (NDC) recognizing Catalyst with its Award for Creative Financing, and multiple industry and Councils of Governments having given Catalyst awards for development excellence. Along the way, we have collaborated with over 50 public and private entities since 2009, procured over $3B in debt and equity, and implemented over $500M in urban residential, mixed-use and transit-oriented developments.
The success of these efforts is rooted in Catalyst’s dynamic team of proven professionals having a strong working relationship and broad range of experience in real estate planning, finance, development and asset management. As a principally-lead organization, Paris Rutherford and Rhys Heinsch are directly involved with the Catalyst team in these activities throughout the life of our property assets, and are committed to creating quality experiences for our investors and the communities we work within.
