Competition

We compete with other public and private real estate companies (including REITs), public and private investment firms, private real estate investors and lenders in acquiring and developing properties. Many of these entities have greater resources than us or other competitive advantages. We also face significant competition in leasing or subleasing available properties to prospective tenants and in re-leasing space to existing tenants.

Principal factors of competition in our primary business of owning, acquiring and leasing properties are the quality and nature of properties, leasing terms (including rent and other charges and allowances for tenant improvements), attractiveness and convenience of location, the quality and breadth of tenant services provided, and reputation of an owner and operator of quality properties in the relevant market. Each of our projects is subject to significant competition from other properties in the same general area. Additionally, our ability to compete depends upon, among other factors, trends of the national and local economies, investment alternatives, financial condition and operating results of current and prospective tenants, availability and cost of capital, construction and renovation costs, taxes, governmental regulations, legislation and population trends.
