TOP CONTRIBUTORS

Brookfield Properties Corporation (NYSE: BPO) is one of the biggest commercial real estate companies in North America. The company's two main segments are ownership, development and management of high-quality properties in the most exclusive and high-growth metropolitan hubs in Canada and the United States[1] and development of residential land.


The segment managing premier assets in exclusive cities is the main driver of BPO's net income earnings. The segment covers over 110 office properties in 75 million square feet (two thirds of which come from New York City alone) [2]

In the wake of the 2008 Financial Crisis which severely harmed the US real estate industry, Brookfield Properties Corporation has outperformed most competitors. The company's commercial property operations — buoyed by higher-than-industry occupancy rates and rent revenue, have increased net operating income and maintained solid, steady cash flows. BPO courts many first-grade clients (which have included Royal Bank Of Canada (RY) , Goldman Sachs Group (GS) and Chevron Corporation (CVX)) [3]


Corporate Overview

Incorporated in the 1920s and existing in various facets of the industry since the 1960s, Brookfield Properties Corporation eventually grew into a powerhouse real estate giant in North America after a series of high-value acquisitions of premier properties in Canada and the US since 1990. Currently, the company owns, develops, and operates premier assets in the downtown cores of mainly New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Houston, Toronto, and Calgary.

Brookfield Properties Corporation focuses on attracting diversified clients very high credit rating. The company acquires office spaces which are well-placed in the cores of high-growth North American metropolises, and manage them on a long-term basis to increase value to potential clients, while fostering demand at low costs to the company.

Another defining philosophy of BPO is active capital management and a market focus in supply-constrained / barrier-to-entry markets whose tenants are very well-capitalized.

Business Segments

BPO Commercial Property Operations covers 12 distinct (geographic) markets in the US and Canada: Houston, Toronto, Calgary, Denver, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Midtown New York City, Downtown New York City, Boston, Ottawa and Vancouver / Edmonton.

The segment has 110  properties — covering 75  million  square  feet (9  million  square  feet  of  parking included). According to the company, the segment's primary markets are the financial,  energy  and  government  center  cities in New  York, Washington,  D.C.,  Houston,  Los  Angeles, Boston, Toronto,  Calgary  and  Ottawa.

In order to realize the value from properties, BPO focuses on proactive leasing of and selective redevelopment, monetizing the development assets (including refinancing of mature properties) and aiming for prudential capital management.
