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 multiple national, regional and local industry awards for its efforts. We were honored to be awarded by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) with its prestigious Impact Award on two occassions, while having been finalist for this award three times. The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) awarded us with its national Pillars of the Industry Award, and we were again honored by the National Development Council (NDC) with its Award for Creative Financing. Our projects have received multiple design and planning awards from related professional organizations, and we have received numerous awards for development excellence from public agencies such as regional Councils of Government. 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 industry-leading 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.
