With a partially developed land project, Fifth Third looked to KRG to assist in the completion of the project. The particular real estate submarket had many adverse factors including the national economy. KRG’s philosophy of researching all applicable conditions and issues with regards to the assets and then developing a strategy proved pivotal in the success of the assignment. With KRG’s thorough market and development knowledge coupled with their experience, the strategy was implemented. KRG repositioned the assets, implemented their strategy and market plan, worked with the local municipality to position the assets correctly in the local real estate market.
Through thoughtful management of the process KRG was able to initially stabilize the asset and then dispose of it over a period of time allowing for a better outcome for the bank than originally believed possible. KRG accomplished this by diligently implementing the predefined strategy along with adapting to changing market conditions.
