More About


SteeleHarbour was founded in 2018 by Chris McGrew and Deepak Hathiramani with a shared vision of creating a differentiated real estate investment platform with a balanced approach to capital appreciation and current income.

SteeleHarbour targets investment opportunities with total deal size of $25 million to $100 million, where larger global investors tend not to focus yet comprise a very substantial part of the real estate market. We invest either directly or in partnership with leading operators and developers to whom we provide relationship-driven, flexible capital solutions to help drive growth and liquidity in their businesses.

We work closely with our partners to create strategic alignment in helping them scale their businesses and meet their strategic objectives near and long term.


SteeleHarbour has created a highly tailored team of real estate professionals that bring breadth and depth of experience to our middle-market investment strategy. Our team brings extensive investment, operating, management, capital markets and advisory experience across real estate asset classes and transaction structures, having collectively completed approximately $8 billion of real estate investment, financing and capital market transactions over the last 25+ years. The members of our team have extensive project management and operational experience across ownership strategies, including ground-up development, renovation, repositioning, lease-up and stabilization, and fully-stabilized ownership.

SteeleHarbour defines success not only by the quality of our investments, but also by the strength and depth of our relationships and in the way we do business.
