WASHINGTON (September 4, 2013) — The Urban Land Institute (ULI) Greenprint Center for Building Performance, a worldwide alliance of leading real estate owners, investors and financial institutions committed to reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions across the global property industry, has announced the addition of Jamestown Properties as a new member.
“From lighting retrofits to LEED certification, Jamestown has always taken its commitment to responsible, sustainable development very seriously,” said Katharine Kelley, Managing Director of Jamestown. “Our partnership with ULI Greenprint will allow us to analyze the efficiency and carbon footprint of our participating properties, and provide insight into how we can continue to improve performance.”
Jamestown, which has a long-standing commitment to environmentally-conscious development practices, was formed in 1983 as a real estate investment and management company with a focus on high-quality current income-producing properties. In 1991, Jamestown expanded its investment profile to include opportunistic real estate funds, targeting the construction, rehabilitation, and repositioning of projects with potential for substantial appreciation. The company has syndicated 27 core and core-plus funds and five opportunity funds, for which it has raised approximately $4 billion in equity. Together these funds have acquired over 80 properties encompassing over 25 million square feet.
