Colliers raising the bar on site activation through the Ground Up Challenge

Ground Up hero image
Unique to Colliers Real Estate Management Services, the Ground Up Challenge fosters an environment where property management teams are encouraged to take “dead space” and turn it into “activated space” using principles of regenerative property management and the desire to leave spaces better than we found them.

The Ground Up Challenge is just one example of REMS’ commitment to site activation, where spaces, programming, and convenience factors enhance tenant and visitor engagement, elevate sustainability, and ultimately raise the profile of the assets we manage.

Many projects characterized the Ground Up Challenge this year, including edible and pollinator gardens, local art, tenant workshops, and site restoration. Among the outcomes of these projects, we saw:

Expanded community partnerships, including with SickKids Hospital and Durham College

Scaled projects across client portfolios, including both office and industrial sites

Circular practices using regenerative principles, including the use of rainwater and worms to create compost and natural fertilizer on site

"There is often a preconceived notion of what commercial real estate spaces should look and feel like,” explains Shiri Rosenberg, Senior Director, Asset Strategy and Site Activation. “Through the Ground Up Challenge, our property management teams are managing sites through a new lens. They are adding value by supporting the environment, community, and people around it. It’s a win for all stakeholders!"
