Lincoln Property Company (LPC), owner/manager of more than 400 million square feet of office space, has made a strategic investment in workplace experience technology company Equiem.
Post-COVID, providing comprehensive digital experiences to occupiers in Class-A commercial buildings has become essential, with landlords placing a greater focus on tenant relationships, experience, communications and data.
“We see tenant engagement and in-building technology experience critical to the future of office,” said Eric Roseman, vice president of innovation and technology ventures at LPC. “Equiem proved to us their ability to integrate all facets of the building experience into a digital platform, activate communities, and generate meaningful data and insights for our leasing and on-site teams.”
Equiem reported that its U.S. business saw 70% growth in contracted revenues last quarter.
“North America is a critical market for Equiem and I’m really pleased with the strong team we’ve built here and the track record for execution we’ve developed. There is a lot of noise surrounding ‘real estate tech’ or ‘proptech’, but as landlords are making decisions about the right technology platforms and partners, they are looking to Equiem based on our deep understanding of real estate, global scale and the maturity and depth of our team and platform,” said Gabrielle McMillan, the New York City-based CEO and co-founder of Equiem. “When landlords pilot several options, as LPC did, that’s where Equiem really stands out. We have a decade of experience that allows us to make this very easy for our clients.
Equiem’s U.S. clients include Unico, Nuveen, Lionstone, Endeavour, Spear Street Capital, Pembroke, Adams & Co., Stockdale and Rising Realty.
