Who we are

Re-thinking Real Estate

Synapse exists for the forward thinking. We build using innovative construction methodologies, like Passive House, that have direct, tangible benefits for our investors, tenants, and the environment. Our approach is laser focused: reduce energy consumption in our buildings while still maintaining the amenities of 21st century living. Through relentless innovation, we bring the latest technology and design practices to what we build. Our buildings are for those who want a better experience, who crave newness, and who love simplicity.
