Real Estate

Staton Capital invests in commercial and retail real estate.

As  a Co-Founder of Duke Realty, a leader in commercial real estate  development, in 1993 we led the company to one of the largest IPO’s  becoming a super-regional publicly traded REIT (NYSE: DRE).  By year end  2000, Duke Realty’s property portfolio exceeded 100 million square  feet. Today, Duke Realty continues to be one of the largest publicly  traded real estate owners, managers, and developers of industrial,  medical, and office properties in the United States.

As Chairman  of Storage Trust Realty (NYSE: SEA), a real estate investment trust that  owned and operated over 180 public self-storage facilities in 16  states, we led the merger with Public Storage (NYSE: PSA) in 1999.  Today, Public Storage, where we still remain on the Board of Directors,  is the world’s largest owner and operator of self-storage facilities,  serving over one million customers, is a member of the S&P 500, and  The Forbes Global 2000.

We are Chairman of the Board of Directors  for ARMOUR Residential REIT (NYSE: ARR) which invests in residential  mortgage-backed securities issued by or guaranteed by U.S. Government  agencies or U.S. Government sponsored entities.
