2019 was a transformational year for Safehold’s geographic diversity; nine new key markets were added to our portfolio, including New York, Hawaii, Austin, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Tampa, Tempe, Portland and Sarasota.

The highest rate of growth took place in New York, with four new trophy office assets, elevating the financial and cultural capital of the world to our top market by portfolio percentage (47.5%). With a foothold in nearly all of the top 30 markets in the U.S. and a growing roster of repeat customers, we anticipate momentum breeding more momentum as real estate investors continue to pursue higher returns with lower risk.

    Ecosystem Expanding

    While Safehold's portfolio has grown significantly since IPO, so too has the ecosystem we are building around the modern ground lease industry. Each new deal and each passing year bring more building owners, sponsors, lawyers, brokers and financing sources into the modern ground lease era. We look forward to growing with this group and expanding it further as we scale.


    Equity Momentum

    Net proceeds have been used to make additional investments, enabling the business to scale and solidifying Safehold as the modern ground lease market leader.
