Belle Investment Company believes that in order to be white hot in a gray economy, commercial real estate development must be targeted and strategic.
Identify sites for development base on future market growth. By only acquiring properties located in markets with large, projected future job growth, Belle seeks to be well ahead of market demand, thus enabling the Company to operate within a more favorable competitive landscape; reduce acquisition costs; lower construction premiums; increase operating margins and maximize returns on investment.
Leverage cost-savings to increase value and command premium pricing. Belle looks to develop only high-end, Class A apartments with quality materials that command premium pricing. By tightly managing a project’s cost structure, the Company is able to develop a property with luxury materials and amenities, not typically found in Class A apartments. Thus, Belle is able to differentiate its apartments among its market competitors, enhance the property’s value and ensure higher future cash flows.
