What We Do

Innovative, flexible, disciplined… words that describe our approach to enhancing real estate value. Whether it is building from the ground up or transforming an obsolete warehouse into state-of-the-art distribution space, we pride ourselves on providing efficient, tangible results.

When we acquire a building, we add value by renovating and upgrading features to current market standards. Whether it is adding new truck docks, replacing the roof, or creating trailer staging lots, we strive to make a tenant’s operations run more smoothly.

Ashley Capital focuses on the development of space solutions. We adapt and adjust in order to create value in the real estate we own and manage. The real estate markets are constantly evolving; we have the vision to stay one step ahead of the curve.

Acquire, Develop, Renovate

Founded in 1984, Ashley Capital has become one of the largest privately-held industrial real estate investment companies in the United States. The firm has offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Florida, and New York. Ashley pursues opportunistic investments, creating value by: 

  • Buying brownfield parcels and transforming them into state of the art industrial centers 
  • Acquiring and redeveloping underperforming industrial and office properties 
  • Developing and managing new business parks 

Ashley’s current portfolio stands at approximately 25 million SF. Over the years, it has taken a long-term perspective in actively managing its holdings and paying close attention to the needs of its tenants. The success of the organization is the result of its strict adherence to investment parameters, its creativity in structuring transactions, and the personal involvement of management in all projects.
