Realterm places the emphasis on finding the most efficient use possible of land that is in short supply and at high costs in dense urban and specialty logistics areas. We design all projects with two priorities in mind: 1) maximizing the highest and best use of the parcel and 2) incorporating design and utilization flexibility to accommodate potential future shifts in industrial trends. Realterm carefully evaluates each site to identify the optimal solutions for facility location, facility size, proximity to major infrastructure, truck court sizing, auto parking, and other special use considerations.

Our goal is to provide our tenants with their most efficient building solutions in terms of utility and economics. Our specialized design expertise enables us to achieve lower development costs than our competitors, which means our tenants obtain lower lease rates.

Realterm's in-house development and construction team offers broad experience in the development of specialty industrial properties including high flow through (HFT®) facilities, high volume retail distribution and highly secure facilities.

Environmentally conscious building practices are being adopted by Realterm. Our company personnel have been certified through the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. The program outlines mandatory prerequisites in areas such as water efficiency, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, energy and atmosphere, innovation and design process, and sustainable sites.
