Real Estate Investing – Introducing: One Good Thing

Each Friday at Jamestown, our employee community wakes up to a weekly e-newsletter called One Good Thing, featuring "one good thing" happening at each of our properties across the globe. One Good Thing often includes community events, tenant successes, and property updates. This roundup of activities adds internal value to our company culture by connecting our teams in different cities to each other and by showing us the collective fruits of our labors.

Once a month, we will bring highlights from this publication to Real Estate 360 to give you a view of the people and experiences that make our Jamestown properties more than just amazing spaces, from examples of Jamestown’s high-touch approach to the inspiring achievements of our tenants. Read on for this month's edition of One Good Thing, a look back at activities and re-openings in June 2020. 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 high-touch approach and tenant successes, which all contribute to company culture.

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.
