Our Strategy

Investing in the Future

From the reimagining of existing properties to small facelifts, we approach each project thoughtfully and purposefully to create places that are both enduring and endearing—providing memorable, resilient, and immersive gathering places that support efficient operations and resonate with the community.

Operational Excellence

Sustainability is embedded in our day-to-day business. It’s reflected in the way we manage the resources used at our properties, monitor ongoing operational performance, and ensure our tenants and vendors are meeting our standards. From big investments in innovative energy technologies to small changes in property management practices, we work to improve every day. 

Social Responsibility

We don’t just invest in real estate—we invest in our communities and our people. We are dedicated to offering high-quality, fulfilling workplaces where each of our employees can thrive and achieve personal goals. At our properties, through events, partnerships, philanthropy, and thoughtful design, we bring people together and enhance the long-term vitality of our communities.

Effective Governance

The long-term success Federal has enjoyed has only been possible as a result of the strong governance practices put in place by our Board of Trustees, and the expectation set by our Board for the company and our employees to conduct business in accordance with the highest ethical standards consistent with our values.
