Each Friday at Jamestown, our employee community wakes up to a weekly e-newsletter called One Good Thing, featuring "one good thing" happening at each of our properties across the globe. One Good Thing often includes community events, tenant successes, and property updates. This roundup of activities adds internal value to our company culture by connecting our teams in different cities to each other and by showing us the collective fruits of our labors.

Once a month, we bring highlights from this publication to Real Estate 360 to give you a view of the people and experiences that make our Jamestown properties more than just amazing spaces, from examples of Jamestown’s high-touch approach to the inspiring achievements of our tenants. Read on for this month's edition of One Good Thing, a look back at activities and reopenings in July 2020. Each of the properties listed here are not owned by or targets for Jamestown Invest 1, LLC. They are not representative of Jamestown Invest 1, LLC’s investment strategy and are not representative of the scale of investments that Jamestown Invest 1, LLC intends to make. This monthly digest is intended to give readers of Real Estate 360 a better understanding of Jamestown’s high-touch approach and tenant successes, which all contribute to company culture.
