How We Create Value

L&L re-imagines buildings. Our vertically-integrated platform enables us to approach an asset from every angle and to provide expertise in all phases of design, development and leasing. Vertical Integration is key to maximizing the value of our portfolio as well as shaping the strategic vision of each asset.

The company sees beyond current conditions. Whether due to inadequate capital, limited development expertise or a lack of strategic vision, L&L is perfectly positioned to determine the reasons behind an asset’s underperformance and formulate strategies to enhance its short- and long-term potential.

Investment Strategy

Through joint ventures with select institutional partners, L&L is focused on transforming outdated and underperforming properties into 21st century icons that contribute to the overall prosperity of its occupants, investors and the greater community. Creating a jewel starts with identifying a building with unrealized potential and reinventing it in ways that enhance its beauty, are sensitive to the environment, and produce the most effective and healthiest platform possible for the workers who inhabit it.

L&L’s framework for re-imagining a building is always tenant-centric and focused on how a property can provide a great work environment, deliver efficient service, and support employee recruitment and retention.
