At CGI, we are driven by a passion to enrich lives, build thoughtful communities, and strategically grow portfolios through conscientious multifamily real estate development, acquisition, and management.
CGI Founder and CEO
This philosophy stems from CGI Founder and CEO Gidi Cohen. His belief in intentional real estate investing — in knowing what investors want to accomplish, understanding the potential of each property, and respecting the needs of the surrounding community — has been a driving force behind 20+ years of acquisitions, dispositions, syndications and developments across multiple asset classes.
It only makes sense, then, that CGI’s giving is intentional, too. That’s why we embrace the following tenets in our philanthropic efforts:
We must give back to the communities where we live and work.
We must support initiatives to effect positive change at a global level.
We must partner with charities important to our residents, employees, and investors.
