Who We Are

Capstone Management Partners, a subsidiary of Capstone Development Partners, was formed specifically to provide the unique services that colleges and universities are asking for. While Capstone Development Partners works with multiple managers/ operators based on project specific needs, CMP is focused on providing customized management services specific to university partners who prefer to outsource operations and facilities management while maintaining control over residential life services. If you are a university or private owner looking for a full-service property management solution, we also offer best-in-class marketing and leasing services. CMP is primarily focused on affiliated campus edge and on-campus student housing facilities. CMP combines the strength and experience of a nationally renowned housing development and asset management company with the skills, efficiencies and procedures of one of the most innovative and prolific student housing property managers in the country, Cardinal Group Management.

The partnership and collaboration between these two highly focused organizations allowed us to envision and build a unique on-campus management company. Capstone Management Partners concentrates on projects with universities that have established residential life programs and who have the desire to maintain direct control of those programs. CMP brings to the equation a focus on student satisfaction, customer service and a sensitivity and understanding of university procedures and demands. More importantly we bring a tested and proven process for building management, maintenance, and marketing and leasing programs that achieve both high standards and cost efficiency.
