Uncovering the Unexpected

The Ratkovich Company prides itself on identifying, selecting, and developing key properties in strategic, high-value locations. For more than four decades, the firm has discovered and delivered unparalleled success — from reinventing Los Angeles’ now-iconic Wiltern Theater to reimagining Howard Hughes’ aircraft campus in Playa Vista as creative tech-forward workspaces. Our team brings projects to life in ways that others miss. Profitable projects that enhance communities and their continued growth.

BUILDING BETTER

The mission of The Ratkovich Company is to profitably produce developments that improve the quality of urban life. This is accomplished through development, redevelopment, partnership, and consultation—all while driving positive returns for our partners and investors. That success enables us to reinvent communities through innovative investment and thoughtful improvement.

BRIDGING LA’S PAST WITH THE FUTURE

The Ratkovich Company has been driven by a singular, uncompromising mission since its founding. That was first demonstrated by commitment to the city by redeveloping the Oviatt Building in Downtown Los Angeles: preserving an iconic Art Deco building that embodies the city’s sophisticated urban aesthetics. The consistency of approach and vision sets the company apart from its competitors and helps deliver both treasured properties and positive returns.
