Connect+: Building More Transportation Choices for Properties and Businesses
At Wells + Associates, we develop and implement proven ways for our clients to improve their property’s value and marketability, including:
- Offering more transportation choices to residents and office workers
- Developing improved transportation amenities and services
- Providing personalized service to help create a better quality of life
Property owners and management teams have their hands full in operating complex facilities. Our team works in tandem with properties to develop customized solutions, providing expertise that few facilities have on staff. These solutions give residents improved transportation choices through “transportation demand management” (TDM) – finding unique ways to improve transportation without the need to build more parking spaces or jam more cars on already-packed roads.
Customized Transportation Strategies That Enrich Property Values
What is the reality for many properties, tenants, and commuters? These situations are not hard to find:
- Twentieth-century suburban office parks and residential buildings.
- Non-transit oriented properties.
- For properties near transit, solving the last-mile connection is frequently the challenge.
Increasingly, these older facilities face greater competition for tenants from properties that are more modern or are located near transit lines.
If this describes your property, how do you:
- raise occupancies,
- lower vacancies,
- attract the growing ranks of millennial residents and workers, and
- successfully compete with transit-oriented options?
We all know that doing a complete rebuild to the latest mixed use and TOD standards isn’t always an option.
The good news is that customized transportation-based strategies can help properties meet occupancy goals, compete against newer builds, and improve property values.
“Because of … demand for renovated space, tenants are increasingly looking to landlords to provide high value tenant improvement packages as a part of the lease.” – NAIOP
In other words, the key to these strategies is creating customized transportation amenities and providing residents with the all-important personal touch that connects them to more transportation networks and amenities.
