Real Estate


The Real Estate group continually looks for opportunities to acquire properties or to enhance the value of the Board's portfolio and the revenue stream to the various trust beneficiaries. Public/private partnerships are crucial to the success of these projects. As a result of recent legislation, the State Land Board can now reinvest its own equity into these projects. Click below to view examples.
