Case Study: Jamestown, LP Builds the Case for Green Leases

Jamestown, L.P. is one of 14 companies to earn the inaugural Green Lease Leaders designation, created by IMT and the U.S.Department of Energy’s
Better Buildings Alliance.

A national, vertically-integrated real estate management company, Jamestown owns over $7 billion in assets. So when it decided to develop a green leasing program to achieve its sustainability goals, the Atlanta-based firm knew it needed to act judiciously in order to effectively increase the performance of the many buildings in its portfolio.

Jamestown earned the Green Lease Leaders recognition in part due to the innovative cost recovery language it uses to break down the split incentive problem and incentivize building improvements; as well as its robust tenant buildout standards, which require that tenants outperform the energy requirements of local building codes.
