Chris White


Chris White is Co-Managing Principal of Brookwood Partners (also known as Brookwood Equities LLC) and, together with Alan Katz, Chris co-leads most of Brookwood’s development activities in California.

Chris joined the Brookwood organization in 2017 and has been leading Brookwood’s major Bay Area development and advisory projects, including 380 units of high-rise housing in downtown Oakland and the entitlement of more than 1,000 residential units on the San Francisco Peninsula. He has led several of Brookwood’s other high-density housing and mixed-use projects including a commercial, hospitality and residential project in Santa Clara. In addition to the development management of these projects, Chris also provides financial analysis and proforma underwriting for project capitalization.

Throughout his career, Chris has played an integral role in billions of dollars of real estate development projects and investments. Prior to joining Brookwood, Chris acquired multifamily properties with a large owner of apartments in San Francisco. His responsibilities included developing the investment strategy for each new acquisition, raising debt and equity capital, and leading the financial analysis, due diligence, and closing process. Chris then oversaw the design and construction team to execute on the rehabilitation or redevelopment strategy for the real property assets acquired.

As with Alan, Chris worked with Stockbridge Capital, where he played a key role in the development and capitalization of some of the largest projects in California including Bay Meadows Phase II, located in San Mateo. The mixed-use project included more than 1,100 units of housing, 700,000 square feet of office, and the public infrastructure to support the community including parks, utilities, and preparation of land pads for sale.

In Southern California, Chris worked closely with the Executive Managing Director of Stockbridge providing the complex financial analysis required for the capitalization and strategic disposition of Hollywood Park, a $3 billion mixed-use 238-acre village that includes housing, office, retail, and the new SoFi stadium to host the LA Rams and Chargers.

Prior to moving to San Francisco, Chris worked with The London Group Realty Advisors in San Diego where he specialized in market analysis and financial feasibility studies for investment and development projects including student housing, office, and retail. Chris has also worked in architecture and construction management, and holds a BA in Economics from UCLA.

He resides in Oakland, California.
