This is a continuation of Case Study you have been doing.
Likely, your case study project has not been funded using personal dollars. Commercial real estate investors purchase properties and banks loan money to fund development processes. Properties are often owned by a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and developed by another company. The value of commercial real estate is based on a number of different factors including location and quality of construction. Currently, environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices have become a part of the building value equation. Let’s analyze your case study regarding financial backing.
Identify the financial backing for your project; is it owned by a REIT?
Identify how the construction of the development or building was financed.
Identify the elements of your project that would score favorably in the GRESB framework.
Discuss how ESG elements/GRESB build a business case for sustainable development.
