Current Real Estate Strategy

While Brookwood has focused primarily on commercial office, retail, flex, and research & development properties, our investment thesis is not dictated by any one fixed model.  Instead, we continually revisit our investment strategies based on our thorough assessment and analysis of the ever-changing market and economic conditions. We purposely remain nimble and shift our acquisition targets, business strategies and disposition efforts as conditions evolve.  We pride ourselves on our ability to discern trends early and to shift our strategies to maximize the benefits of those trends.
Brookwood's current investment strategies and criteria are outlined below.  Although we may consider using leverage as part of these strategies, we have the ability to purchase assets that meet these criteria without incurring debt. On a selective basis, we will consider joint venture opportunities with well-established partners.
Today, our primary focus is on the purchase of undervalued commercial real estate properties in the United States.  To this end, we remain open to opportunistic investing in different markets, sectors or asset classes that, as a result of market inefficiencies, offer the highest risk-adjusted returns at the time of investment.

Current Strategy
We are focused on acquiring fundamentally sound, value-add properties in those U.S. markets  that are in the early or middle stages of recovery, and have strong demographic characteristics, healthy projected job growth, diverse economies, and/or structural impediments to new supply of competing properties, as well as downtown and suburban markets in certain secondary cities. Typically these are markets that have yet to see the price increases that have occurred in many of the 24-hour gateway cities.

Current Acquisition Criteria
Brookwood is targeting assets that meet the following criteria:
  • Multi-tenant properties within the following classes: CBD office, suburban office, flex, mixed-use, industrial and research & development properties, as well as grocery-anchored and neighborhood retail centers
  • Assets located in the mature infill areas surrounding Boston, Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Oakland/East Bay, Phoenix, South Florida, Orlando, Dallas, Northern New Jersey, Charlotte and the Baltimore corridor. We will also consider portfolio investments in other markets where we can achieve our risk/return objectives
  • Assets with a three-to-five-year projected holding period
