Compare:SLG, ARE, PKY, SIR, PDM » details
Traded in other countries:HQS.Germany,
Highwoods Properties Inc was incorporated in Maryland in 1994. The Company's business is the operation, acquisition and development of rental real estate properties. It operates office, industrial, retail and residential properties in the Southeastern and Midwestern United States. Its office properties represent around 87.0% of rental and other revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011. Its Strategic Plan focuses on owning high-quality, differentiated real estate assets in the better sub-markets in its core markets; improving the operating results of its existing properties through concentrated leasing, asset management, cost control and customer service efforts; developing and acquiring office properties in in-fill and central business district locations that improve the overall quality of its portfolio and generate attractive returns over the long-term for its stockholders; selectively disposing of properties no longer considered to be core holdings primarily due to location, age, quality and overall strategic fit; and maintaining a conservative, flexible balance sheet with ample liquidity to meet its funding needs and growth prospects. The Company competes with other REITs, financial institutions, pension funds, partnerships, individual investors and others when attempting to acquire, develop and operate properties.
