Money Manager | Monday, April 11th, 2011

Equity Office Properties: This Real Estate Investment Trust is based on office properties and investments; it was founded in Chicago Illinois.

Equity Office Properties is one of the largest office space owners in the United States; it owns more than 59 million square feet of class A office space in most urban areas in the USA. They also have many signature companies that give the REIT name resignation, as well as a stable income.

Equity Office Properties is over 30 years old, and has been buying and selling properties for the length of its life, never having to claim bankruptcies or sell off property to pay off debts.

Equity Office Properties has over 400 buildings focusing on the east coast, but they do have several properties on the west coast and in the south.

Equity Office Properties has developed and owned some of the nation’s most iconic buildings and structures, such as the Ferry Building and the Bay Park Plaza, having properties that are well known and well located helps with REITs stability and branding.

Equity Office Properties is a top employer and offers a great retirement plan and 401k, the company also strives to be a leader in environmental sustainability, they use only energy efficient products in all of their new buildings and developments, they also reduce and reuse material in the building process.

Equity Office Properties also helps out the local communities in which it is located such as: in Boston the company helped clean up a neighbourhood and in Northern California they helped rebuild a building for victims of violence.

Equity Office Properties is a real estate investment trust, meaning that it is taxed differently from any other business, the profits are given to the shareholders at the end of every quarter rather than given to the management team or CEO this makes a REIT a great way to invest money that you do not want taxed or for a person who wants a quarterly dividend.

Equity Office Properties employs some of the best people in the business most of the leaders of the company have over 25 years’ experience in both the financial and the real estate markets.
