Hawthorne Residential Partners, a fully integrated multifamily investment, management, and development company of high-quality apartment properties, earned national recognition today by making the National Multifamily Housing Council’s (NMHC) 2022 NMHC Top 50, the annual ranking of the nation’s largest apartment owners, managers, developers, builders, and syndicators. Hawthorne ranks as the 40th largest management firm in the nation.

This year marks the 33rd edition of the NMHC Top 50 lists. NMHC partners with Kingsley Associates, a leading real estate research and consulting firm for the NMHC 50’s research and analysis. All apartment owners, managers, developers, builders, and syndicators are invited to answer a survey questionnaire that asks about their prior year activities. Apartment owners, managers, and syndicators are ranked based on their portfolio holdings (either owned or managed) as of January 1, 2022, while developers and builders are ranked based on the number of units started in 2021.
