A New Tool to Substantially Increase Returns and Flexibility

With our new Land Capital Investment program, we can partner with Developers in order to remove barriers, create land control flexibility, and free up critical capital.

By securing the land rights of a project, Forum not only increases your return on capital, it can also significantly decrease project risk by avoiding problems arising from property–owners such as:

  • refusing to lease their land in the first place
  • increasing lease charges
  • electing to sell the property outright to an unknown third party

Forum will negotiate a fair purchase price to buy the land underlying the project from the existing property owner, while simultaneously entering into a fair long-term ground lease with the project developer/proponent.

With this new program, Developers can benefit from gaining a preferred tax treatment of a long term ground lease as compared to a land purchase transaction PLUS gain competitive lease rates based on the value created by the security of the ground lease.

Its also desirable for the property owner, as they can achieve ‘peace-of-mind’ and exit their land position at a fair market value without the ongoing responsibility of managing the lease.
