Next Generation Honoree: Berkadia’s Chinmay Bhatt Sees the Big Picture

Chinmay Bhatt joined Berkadia in March 2019, following Berkadia’s acquisition of Central Park Capital Partners, a boutique real estate capital advisory firm focused on arranging joint venture investments and structured capital from international and domestic institutional and qualified capital sources.

Among three tapped to launch Berkadia’s JV Equity & Structured Capital group to bring clients competitive joint venture capital opportunities and further solidify the organization’s opportunity as a one-stop shop, Bhatt has continued the targeted approach to client engagement and deal execution that made Central Park Capital Partners an obvious acquisition for Berkadia.

These are just a few of the reasons we chose Bhatt to be one of the National 2019 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s third annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.

Bhatt takes a thoughtful, “big picture” approach to problem-solving, and has an uncanny ability to find unique capital solutions and structure transactions where others have failed or given up. He recognizes that, more often than not, finding the right answer can take some time. For example, he’s currently working with an overseas family office entering the U.S. real estate market, a family with which he’s had a working relationship for more than 10 years. He’s spent the past six months working with them to evaluate what would be the right first deal for them.
