"AEW is pleased to be a capital partner of Criterion's. Our decision to provide equity capital for Criterion on the Charles in Watertown, MA was largely due to Criterion's track record of developing well-conceived, high-quality apartment communities with strong historical investment performance. They have demonstrated the ability to source a strong pipeline of development opportunities, and we have confidence in their ability to deliver those projects on-time and on-budget."
- Michael P. Byrne,
Vice President, AEW Capital Management, L.P.
"GID Investment Advisers provided angel investment capital to Criterion and was Criterion's project-level equity partner on their first set of projects. We had a long prior history with Criterion's principals. Knowing their extensive development capabilities, their commitment to excellence, and their honesty and integrity made it an easy decision to provide them growth and development capital. Our decision to invest with Criterion has been well rewarded. We certainly consider Criterion at the very top when comparing them to other opportunities that we see for multifamily developments."
- Robert E. DeWitt,
Vice Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, GID Investment Advisers
"Criterion understands the importance of building strong and beneficial relationships in the real estate lending community, and they are clearly one of our preferred customers for multifamily and mixed use development opportunities."
