Lima One Capital, one of the nation’s premier lenders for real estate investors, announced plans to expand its U.S. headquarters in Greenville County. The company’s $51.4 million investment will create approximately 300 new jobs.
Founded in 2010, Lima One Capital has funded over $7 billion in loans for real estate investors who are building, improving and stabilizing neighborhoods across the nation. The company’s core products include bridge loans, rental property and portfolio loans, new construction loans and multifamily bridge lending. Utilizing industry-leading technology, Lima One Capital relies on in-house underwriting, construction management and servicing teams to deliver unparalleled customer service.
The company’s current operations are located at 201 East McBee Avenue, Suite 300 in Greenville. As part of the expansion, Lima One Capital will lease approximately 65,000 square feet in a newly constructed building in the County Square development in Greenville. This new facility will more than double Lima One Capital’s office space, allowing the company to continue its rapid growth, attract talent to Greenville and deliver its industry-leading customer experience. The company also has an operations center in Irvine, California.
The expansion is expected to be complete by 2025. Individuals interested in joining the Lima One Capital team should visit the company’s careers page.
