BRIDGE creates lasting value through sustainability.

Our Mission

Our mission is to drive sustainable value in real estate by incorporating ESG principles into every aspect of how we do business.

Our Vision

As stewards of sustainability, resilience and regeneration, our vision is to deliver exceptional value for our investors, employees, tenants and communities through superior ESG performance.

Our Guiding Principles


Environmental

We are a positive force for environmental stewardship, creating value and resilience through innovative and sustainable practices.

Social

We believe investment in social wellbeing is a key driver behind healthy, vibrant and diverse workforce, tenants, partners, and communities.

Governance

Our corporate governance practices are built on a strong foundation of transparency, ethical behavior and integrity. 


Environmental

BRIDGE invests in climate resilient assets to ensure the longevity of our portfolio.

Our Brownfields Approach. We are not afraid to get our hands dirty. While many industrial developers steer clear of projects that require extensive restoration efforts, we see the potential to regenerate these outdated and contaminated sites. Utilizing our expertise in revitalizing complex properties, we develop clean and sustainable industrial facilities that attract modern, 21st century users, resulting in positive environmental, social, and economic outcomes for the neighborhoods, communities, and municipalities where they are located.

After

In 2017, Bridge acquired the 103-acre campus in Perth Amboy, NJ, that had previously housed a smelting facility and had sat vacant for 17 years. Bridge restored the site to a useful condition under the guidance of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional and received a Response Action Outcome in 2018. The project created over 3,000 jobs in the community – estimated as 900 construction jobs and more than 2,200 permanent warehouse jobs upon completion of Phase II.

After

Bridge Point Franklin Park is a 48-acre site that was formerly owned by Magellan Pipeline Corporation and housed 26 above-ground storage tanks connected to an oil pipeline. As part of its development process, Bridge demolished the existing tanks and worked to remediate the site to achieve a No Further Remediation (NFR) letter from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA). The detailed work performed included: cleaning, inspecting and demolishing the existing above-ground storage tanks, hauling off the infected soils, completing the buildings and parking lot work to create a cap on the contaminated soils, all in coordination with the IEPA.

Our LEED Pledge

From the moment we begin designing a new facility, we work toward a sustainable, resilient future. We have pledged to certify all our new industrial developments under the LEED® Building Design & Construction rating system. This commitment means we design and build all our properties to meet the LEED requirements for location, site management, water and energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. We have already applied for LEED v4 Core and Shell certification for several properties and are beginning participation in the LEED Volume Program. 

Social

BRIDGE provides excellent work environments that promote employee engagement and health and well-being.

Professional and Personal Development

At BRIDGE, we foster professional and personal development by offering one-year memberships to MasterClass, a streaming platform offering hundreds of video lessons on everything from business strategy and effective communication skills to yoga and  mindfulness to Italian cooking and French pastry making.

Percent Pledge

BRIDGE promotes a sustainable culture of giving. Using an online workplace giving and volunteering platform, Percent Pledge, we encourage donations via corporate matching programs, a portfolio of vetted charitable organizations customized for our organization, and curated volunteer opportunities that make philanthropy easy and sustainable.

Mentorship Program

The Mentorship Program helps the increasing number of junior employees get onboarded and acclimated, promotes interaction across regions and specialties, and creates relationships that are fun and mutually beneficial for both mentees and their mentors.

BRIDGE invests in the well-being of the communities where we work.
