ULI Greenprint Annual Performance Report Vol 10 – Green Leasing for Multifamily Housing: GID Investment Advisers
With the over $40 million that Greenprint members report investing on ESG projects in 2018, many elements of those investments (such as lighting retrofits, occupancy sensors, and even building envelope upgrades) can be considered when incorporating sustainability into leases. Landlords and tenants continue to bridge the gap and overcome the split incentive— the issue that arises when one party pays the utility costs and the other pays for building upgrades such as a more efficient building envelope, HVAC, or other base building systems. Green, or “energy aligned” leasing, is a way to overcome this.

The building was built in 1910 as a grand hotel, and is fondly remembered by many local residents.

The complex seamlessly integrates shopping, sports, leisure, and cultural activities with residences within the central area of Coimbra, providing the city’s 405,000 residents with a wide range of new facilities and services.
South Campus Gateway is a visionary collaboration between the Ohio State University, the city of Columbus, and neighborhood stakeholders in an effort to transform a 7.5-acre (3 ha) tract that straddles the university campus and a distressed, low-income neighborhood.

In August 2003, Kemper Development Company (KDC), owner of the successful, adjacent Bellevue Square and Bellevue Center retail projects, took on the challenge of turning around the Lincoln Square project—a massive risk in the uncertain economic climate of the early 2000s. After four years of redesign and innovative construction, the 1.4 million-square-foot (130,064-m2) mixed-use project, replete with 300,000 square feet (2,787 m2) of retail; a 28-story, Class A office tower; 148 luxury condominiums; and a 19-story hotel, has resuscitated a moribund development and brought much-needed density to a suburban environment. The two towers rise from five stories of underground parking and a three-level retail podium, featuring a luxury cinema, restaurants, home-related stores, and upscale entertainment.
