AAMC, a leader in academic medicine, retained JM Zell to formulate a consolidation strategy for the rapidly growing organization by unlocking and maximizing the value of its existing buildings to offset costs of a new headquarters.

JM Zell worked closely with AAMC’s leadership on its vision for how the new headquarters would advance its learning mission.

Based on clear strategic, financial, and operational objectives, JM Zell evaluated many scenarios including expanding its existing campus versus relocation as well as variations of lease or purchase alternatives. JM Zell undertook a rigorous financial ‘stress test’ to ensure AAMC had the debt capacity to meet bond financing requirements.

JM Zell orchestrated and implemented all strategic, transaction, and project management activities from site acquisition and disposition to bond financing and overseeing the entire build-to-suit development and relocation processes.
