Case Study

Creative real estate financing supports campus enrollment growth

​In early 2014, a new campus of one of the West Coast's major public universities faced severe cuts in state funding at time when their student enrollment was at an upswing, resulting in a need for physical improvements and expansion of its grounds and facilities. To help identify potential solutions and financial options, the university solicited JLL to evaluate their real estate portfolio and design a real estate-based financing strategy that aligned with the campus expansion goals.

After several months of intensive research including interviews with on-campus community and government leadership and extensive market and financial feasibility analysis, we designed a financial plan that identified new revenue opportunities for the university including: tapping the value of unused or underutilized land and operating assets, capturing new tax increment, generating new ground lease revenues, entering into public-private partnerships, enhancing it auxiliary programs and producing savings from debt reduction.
