The Lend Lease Nashville office is home to its public partnership business, which was established in 1999.


Lend Lease, one of the nation’s leaders in public/private community development is overseeing one of the largest overall Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) portfolios to date, and holds the largest share of privatized housing contracts with the U.S. Army.

In ten years, Lend Lease has built a strong reputation for its sound business practices; its property portfolio includes real estate on more than 21 military installations in 19 states.

As a fully integrated property solutions provider, Lend Lease’s goal is to surpass expected financial outcomes for all stakeholders and add further long-term value by creating developments that will continue operations for a minimum of 50 years.

Lend Lease became a leader in planning, designing, building and managing residential communities for military personnel, not just by adhering to sound business practices, but also by embracing innovation every step of the way.

With a focus on creating sustainable value, Lend Lease creates communities that regenerate our environment, enrich people’s lives and foster economic growth.

With Lend Lease, you have a resource with proven leadership, as demonstrated by a long series of firsts and ‘best-in-class’ developments. Partners that choose Lend Lease are beneficiaries of the company’s global real estate experience, deep organizational capabilities and unmatched financial strength.


Lend Lease has worked extensively with the Department of Defense through the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI), a program that provides for the transfer of military housing assets to private sector companies. With over 40,000 residential units, 192 apartments and 8,500 hotel rooms in its portfolio, Lend Lease will finance, develop, build, renovate and operate these sites for at least 50 years.
