Curtis Palmer

Executive Vice President, Head of Residential Investments, Acquisitions & Capital Markets

Curtis Palmer has been with Dreamscape since its founding in 2019. He brings nearly three decades of real estate experience to the firm. Prior to joining Dreamscape, Curtis held senior positions with Newmark Knight Frank, CBRE and was a founding partner of Brooktree Realty Investors in tandem with Multi-Housing Capital Advisors (MHCA). In those positions Curtis actively sold, financed and managed $25 billion in apartment and office products. During his tenure as a managing partner at Brooktree, the firm acquired over $150 million of apartment-related assets in Southern California during the Great Recession. These were ultimately sold for a profit between 2011 and 2014.

Curtis was born and raised in Miami, though much of his family has long been located in New York City. After living in New York City and Miami Beach as a young adult, he relocated to Los Angeles in 1998, where he currently resides with his wife, two children and an Old English Sheep Dog. A lifelong Miami Dolphins fan, Curtis still owns 10 season tickets that he inherited from his father. Curtis is an avid tennis player who also enjoys hiking in the Hollywood Hills with his family and friends.

Curtis holds a Master of Business Administration from the Herbert School of Business at University of Miami.

We are stewards of capital and creativity

At Dreamscape, we are stewards of both creativity and capital. Our goal is to (re)develop residential, retail, hospitality, entertainment and gaming properties into unique and dynamic environments that command attention and maximize value for our investors.

Dreamscape’s mission is to generate long-term financial prosperity through a diversified portfolio of differentiated, forward-thinking real estate projects.

Our focus is on creating multi-faceted and dynamic residential, retail, hospitality, entertainment and gaming experiences.

Led by Founder and CEO Eric Birnbaum, Dreamscape’s team has forged deep connections within the commercial real estate industry nationwide. With trust established and a proven vision, Dreamscape has access to proprietary, off-market deals and is able to transact with speed, skill and integrity. We strive to efficiently acquire properties and then (re)develop them into fully realized and uniquely vibrant destinations. In doing so, we aim to promote and celebrate contemporary cultural values while fostering lasting financial success.

Dreamscape’s team also has a strong and unique network of creative collaborators within the music, fashion, food and beverage and design worlds, having worked with top talents across varied industries – including music and fashion powerhouse Pharrell Williams, renowned interior designer Ken Fulk, award-winning architect Morris Adjmi, nightlife and F&B impresario David Grutman at Groot Hospitality, Jeff Zalaznick at Major Food Group, and many others. We aim to cultivate new and unexpected relationships on an ongoing basis so that each of our properties delivers a unique, innovative and memorable imprint.

For Dreamscape, real estate is a source of both value and diverse cultural engagement. By galvanizing bespoke and specialized experiences, we strive to nurture distinctive, lively and worldly communities.

Target Acquisitions and Capabilities
Dreamscape seeks to identify well-located but undercapitalized, underutilized or mismanaged assets across its target sectors. Dreamscape also works with existing ownership groups that may be in need of the capital, operational expertise or creative vision to improve a property’s positioning.
Location
Dreamscape analyzes market and submarket trends to project a location’s economic health and potential. We focus on pure real estate fundamentals, demographic data, and other critical statistical information that give us insight as to whether an asset can be (re)developed or (re)positioned to meet our investment criteria.
Collaboration
Once Dreamscape has identified an opportunity, the team taps into its network of collaborators to bring the concept to life. This process ensures a finely calibrated balance integrating capital and creativity.
