Portfolio Update: December 2020

At Jamestown, we share a mission to create innovation hubs and community centers at our commercial real estate properties.

Once a month, Portfolio News will highlight the people and experiences that make Jamestown real estate properties more than just amazing spaces. Portfolio News posts will explore items of interest in the areas of Innovation, Growth, Sustainability, and Community; these four pillars inform the value-add work we do every day as a real estate investment and management firm. Each of the properties listed here are not owned by or targets for Jamestown Invest 1, LLC. They are not representative of Jamestown Invest 1, LLC’s investment strategy and are not representative of the scale of investments that Jamestown Invest 1, LLC intends to make. This monthly digest is intended to give readers of Real Estate 360 a better understanding of Jamestown’s approach and tenant successes, which all contribute to company culture.

INNOVATION

Jamestown launched a pilot with technology company Bbot at Ponce City Market to increase the ease of mobile ordering, pick-up, and delivery across the property. In a time where mobile ordering is a must-have for our restaurant community, Bbot will integrate with PCM's HqO app to deploy a simple, reliable system that increases traffic.

GROWTH

The Village Market, offering goods from 25 Black local entrepreneurs, opened its doors on the second floor at Ponce City Market. Expectations were exceeded as countless locals showed up to support the new store's grand opening. Founded by Dr. Lakeysha Hallmon – an Atlantan social entrepreneur, curator, speaker, and educator – the shop offers a variety of products, including apparel, home goods, body products, and more.

  • 59,257 acres were added to the Timberland portfolio
  • 9 United Nations Sustainability Goals are directly impacted by Jamestown timber forests
  • Jamestown timber forests are now located in 6 states
  • Timber harvested is equal to 150 million toilet paper rolls

COMMUNITY

Chelsea Market partnered with Google to donate 150 care packages to local families in need. The boxes were filled with products from Hot Bread Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that helps create economic opportunities for minority entrepreneurs in the food industry.

Any actual transactions described herein are for illustrative purposes only and, unless otherwise stated in the presentation, are presented as of underwriting and may not be indicative of actual performance.

The NPI is a quarterly, composite total return for private commercial real estate properties located in the United States. The NPI includes operating office, retail, industrial, apartment, or hotel properties accounted for on a market value basis and includes the impact of leverage employed on the properties in the index. The NPI Levered Index is illustrative of historical average annualized commercial real estate returns on a gross property level leveraged basis, and these historical returns may not be indicative of future results. Leverage adds additional risks because leverage providers generally get paid first and may have a full or partial recourse claim against a portfolio. Such real estate return data should not be used to estimate returns of Jamestown Invest investments. While Jamestown Invest 1, LLC may acquire properties that meet some of the NPI criteria, it may acquire properties that do not meet such criteria. Further, Jamestown Invest property returns may have a better or worse average annualized return performance compared to the index as each real estate investment is unique in nature, which is inherently problematic for benchmarking to the composite returns of a highly diversified index.
