Whether it be the adaptive reuse of an office building into multifamily, or transforming an office into a mixed-use property featuring hospitality, retail and office, real estate value-add strategies are all about creating value for investors.  But how do investment managers do that given market cycles?  How do they source deals and execute on their strategies to generate the returns that investors need?
