Lendlease has been creating innovative property solutions for more than 50 years and is currently delivering some of the world’s most iconic developments. Through design and investment in new technologies, we are committed to delivering the next generation of sustainable property solutions, from environmentally-rated buildings to large scale low-carbon communities.
Lendlease, one of the nation’s leaders in military community development, is overseeing one of the largest overall Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) portfolios and holds the largest share of privatized housing contracts with the US Army. Lendlease has built a strong reputation for its sound business practices. As a fully integrated property solutions provider, Lendlease’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.
Lendlease has created fully master planned, sustainable, mixed-use communities throughout the United States with over 41,000 residential units and 192 apartments. Projects to note include one of the United States' largest solar powered communities at Island Palm Communities (Hawaii); the first Zero Energy Home on a military installation at Campbell Crossing (Kentucky), the nation’s largest solar thermal project (Atlantic Marine Corps Communities); and the largest LEED-Silver certified community in the state of Texas (Fort Hood). Lendlease has financed, developed, built, renovated and will operate these sites for at least 50 years.
Lendlease became the first developer to begin operations under the Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL) in August 2009 when it assumed ownership of more than 3,200 hotel rooms located across 10 US Army installations with its operations partner, IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group). In 2010, the Army selected Lendlease to implement the second phase of the program to renovate, develop, operate, and sustain hotels at an additional 11 installations, bringing the total portfolio to approximately 7,700 hotel rooms on 21 military installations. In April 2013, Lendlease closed the third phase of the program. Today, Lendlease’s privatized hotel portfolio includes approximately 12,492 hotel rooms on 41 military installations throughout the US.
