Leasing & Acquisitions Officer, Industrial

South Florida

JOB DESCRIPTION

Firm & Position Overview:
 

        Our client is among the largest real estate investment managers in the world. The combined real estate team now comprises approximately 260 professionals including investment and leasing officers, development managers, tenant account managers, property managers, and operational professionals. Our client has headquarters/operational offices in Philadelphia, London, Stockholm and Luxembourg as well as regional acquisition, leasing, development and property management offices in Boston, Washington DC, Charlotte, Atlanta, Orlando, South Florida, Nashville, Columbus, Indianapolis, Chicago, Memphis, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Sao Paolo, Dublin, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Munich, Berlin, Warsaw, Prague, Milan, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Seoul and Shanghai.

 

Our client, acquires, develops, leases, and manages logistics/industrial, office, life science and multifamily properties. As a hands-on operator with 40 regional offices across North and South America, Europe and Asia, our client combines local execution and global scope to deliver superior real estate solutions to tenants while providing investment partners with some of the industry’s leading and most consistent value-add, core-plus and core returns, as proven against prominent global benchmarks. Our client has consummated over 700 real estate investments totaling approximately $25 billion in property value.

 

Investment Themes:
 

Within targeted property sectors, our client focuses on thematic drivers of tenant demand. Tenant demand can be divided into the needs of commercial tenants who occupy industrial, office, life science and related tech and business park properties and consumer tenants who occupy multifamily, student or senior residences or self- storage facilities. Thematic drivers of industrial real estate include global supply chain reconfiguration and e- commerce, and accordingly our client has been dedicated to serving as the premier provider of warehouse space to global distributors and online retailers. In the office and life science property sector, our client seeks to provide well-established pharmaceutical, tech, financial service, and other large corporate users with the most functional, efficient, and well-located commercial real estate. In the U.S., such assets are typically single- occupier properties in top tier, close-in suburbs, while in Europe our client focuses on urban, gateway city locations.

In our client’s multifamily division, one thematic driver is the robust job growth from the health care, innovation, research, and higher education industry cluster, so our client serves the rental housing needs of professionals drawn to these “meds and eds” districts within our target cities. Our client’s multifamily division also serves the housing needs of renters who are underserved by typical residential development, and as such our client pursues investments in affordable workforce housing, student housing, accessible housing, and elder housing, among others.

In all cases, our client’s team has deep experience in design and development—from state-of-the-art distribution centers to high-image corporate, lab and research facilities, to urban residential towers—is a distinct competitive advantage in providing the most modern and functional real estate solutions to our tenants.
