North Palisade Partners, a Los Angeles-based industrial and self-storage investment and development firm, added William Jacobs as a Senior Development Manager in its Los Angeles office. Jacobs will be a key player on the team and be responsible for conducting due diligence, securing entitlements, and leading development and construction activities for ground-up industrial, industrial outdoor storage and self-storage developments in California.

Jacobs will support all aspects of the development lifecycle including reviewing due diligence materials, performing zoning and land use analyses, conducting market research, preparing investment memorandums, and securing project approvals and permits and construction management.

North Palisade Partners’ Joe Mishurda, Managing Partner, said, “William joins North Palisade at an important time as we continue to grow our portfolio with new industrial, self-storage and industrial outdoor storage developments. His experience and skillset will allow us to execute on development plans more efficiently from the initial entitlement phases through project completion, as well as the acquisition process as we expand our holdings.”

Over a 16-year career, Jacobs has substantially contributed to the entitlement, development and construction over $500 million of industrial, multi-family, hospitality and residential projects. Jacobs brings broad experience in due diligence, underwriting, entitlements, permitting, subdivision mapping, utility coordination, site environmental, municipal relations, project controls, pre-construction, and construction management to the company.

Jacobs began his career with general contractor Morley Builders, where he focused on architectural concrete and design-build project delivery for municipal infrastructure projects. He holds a master’s degree from the UCLA Anderson School of Management and an undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California. He is a licensed real estate broker and resides in Los Angeles.

North Palisade is expanding its footprint in core Western U.S. supply chain and logistics markets. North Palisade has added five industrial and self-storage development properties totaling over $150 million to its portfolio in California so far this year. The company’s growth plans include key logistics markets in Northern California, Southern California, Las Vegas, Reno, and Seattle.
