Since its inception in 2018, SCP has committed $2 billion concentrated in construction and condo inventory loans. With the announcement of its third fund, SCP has raised a total of $4 billion.

Our access to Silverstein’s in-house design, development, construction, leasing, and asset management resources allows us to efficiently underwrite and bid complicated projects.”
