We are Cathartes

Cathartes is a Boston-based private real estate firm with nearly one billion in investments across the Northeast. With every project, we strive to meet the evolving needs of an ever-changing society with purposeful spaces that promote smart living.

We are dedicated to developing environments that bring together work-life balance, wellness, sustainability and community engagement. Our projects range from a five-acre, 400,000 square foot mixed-use development that includes hotels, restaurants, and residences, to a transformed industrial space converted to a hive of creative commerce where business, arts and sciences come together, to one of the largest solar plants in Massachusetts.

We select our projects relying on 30 years of extensive industry experience and a sophisticated knowledge of a broad range of property types, including mixed-use, multi-family, hotel, office, industrial, retail, and specialized technology. The result is over three decades of above-market returns, revitalized urban communities and improved quality of life for residents and businesses.

We choose each project carefully based on a progressive vision that incorporates the overall goal of smart living. We are relentless in the pursuit of creating environments that are steps ahead of the evolving needs of a rapidly-changing society. We uncover unique opportunities to bring smart living into communities through our real estate projects.

We make it our mission to be at the forefront of today’s professional, social and wellness needs with thoughtfully-located work spaces and technology, access to fitness spaces, nutritional food and outdoor space. We pursue an environmentally focused approach with LEED projects and initiatives such as a solar plant that provides clean energy to over 600 homes.
