bOwners are taking note of banything that integrates the different technologies in the building so that the energy systems and security systems are all running off of one server,b according to Chamberlain. bSustainable, high performance buildings are here to stay, and that’s going to create the value.bb

More money is being spent on these improvements in coastal and gateway cities rather than secondary and tertiary markets. Visit REIT.com for more information.
