PMAT is a real estate development firm focused on value-add shopping center investments across the Southeast, Sunbelt, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions. Our firm was founded and is headed by Robert A. Whelan, a former Chief Financial Officer of Sizeler Property Investors, Inc., a NYSE-traded shopping center and multifamily REIT that owned several million square feet of retail properties and several thousand multifamily units.
In January 2003, Mr. Whelan left the REIT to form the PMAT Companies. Since that time the PMAT Companies have acquired and renovated over 40 primarily grocery anchored shopping centers with an aggregate value of over 1 Billion dollars consisting of 9 million square feet. PMAT investment strategy is to acquire value-add shopping centers and create long term value through redevelopment and re-tenanting of the assets.
