Accelerate the growth of a leading university while maintaining a minimal operating footprint.

How do you heighten innovation and expansion without the burden and bureaucracy of a traditional real estate model? We teamed up with Northeastern University to find the answer. Our goal is to find practical pathways forward to establish an asset-light, partnership-based real estate model that would accelerate the university's global growth.
