Lincoln Property Company chairman Mack Pogue formed the company in 1965 to develop and manage high-end real estate. Initially, Lincoln developed residential properties exclusively, but by the early 1970's Lincoln began to diversify its product line to include office, retail, and industrial properties. Early experience as a developer and owner naturally led Lincoln to become a premier real-estate service organization offering a full range of asset management, property management, and construction management products and services. Today, Lincoln Property Company has a strong presence in over 40 residential and commercial real estate markets around the world, and has grown into a full-service real estate provider globally.
Lincoln Property Company today employs approximately 4,400 people in 40 area administrative offices in the United States and Europe. Our cumulative development volume currently exceeds $11.5 billion in commercial properties and our development efforts have produced 120,000,000 square feet of commercial space. Lincoln's commercial developments have been widely recognized as landmarks in their communities for their design, quality and superior locations. Lincoln currently manages more than 124,500,000 square feet of commercial property and 128,800,000 square feet of residential property nationwide at a combined value of more than $26.5 billion.
Lincoln's Boston office, at 53 State Street, serves as the New England headquarters for all brokerage, property management, construction management, development and advisory services. With over 15 million square feet of leasing and management assignments and representing the interests of tenants in numerous lease transactions annually, Lincoln maintains a dominant presence in the Greater Boston/New England real estate market. Supported by a sophisticated research and marketing department, our tenant leasing advisors have at their disposal state of the art technology and up to date market information. These resources are the backbone of the quality services we provide to our clients.
While the uncertain nature of today's real estate markets makes local expertise more critical than ever, Lincoln Property Company offers the client-focused, customized real estate services demanded in today's marketplace. The knowledge and experience of our professionals places us in an excellent position to serve the needs of a diverse portfolio of clients- both large or small-including many of today's major tenants, developers, owners, institutions, lenders and investors.
