McCourt Global is a leader in building value through entrepreneurial, strategic, and philanthropic investments.
McCourt Global’s heritage spans five generations to 1893 when an Irish immigrant by the name of John McCourt started The John McCourt Company, one of New England’s most successful road building companies. Since then, the McCourt family has been a key figure in many of the region’s most significant construction and development projects including Boston’s Seaport and Back Bay, Logan Airport, Boston’s original Central Artery and the tunnel network that replaced it, and numerous other roads and airports. Over the decades, the McCourt family’s business interests have evolved dramatically and now include construction, real estate, finance, sports, media, and telecommunications projects around the world.
Founded by real estate developer and philanthropist Frank H. McCourt, Jr., McCourt Global builds upon that rich heritage and track record of success. Its principal businesses currently include McCourt Global Properties, the real estate investment and development unit, and McCourt Global Capital, developers of global investment solutions.
The firm’s current real estate holdings include 360 Tenth Avenue in New York City; 1201 Brickell Bay Drive in Miami; a 1.4 million square foot development project on Waller Creek in Austin, Texas; and approximately 260 acres of land in Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles. In January 2015, McCourt Global announced the launch of MGG Investment Group, a specialty finance firm and direct lender.
McCourt Global is also founder or strategic partner of several important, not-for-profit and education initiatives including ThinkCure!, an innovative not-for-profit providing funding for collaborative cancer research, and The Future Project, a national organization focused on empowering the next generation to build America’s future.
