Taylor Johnson Announces New Client Lendlease Americas

December 17, 2021

Dear Joseph,

I am pleased to announce Taylor Johnson has expanded its existing relationship with Lendlease, a leading global real estate group, and now manages corporate PR for the company’s entire Americas region. Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, Lendlease has approximately 10,800 employees internationally. The Americas region, headquartered in New York, offers core capabilities in property and community development, construction, and investment management.

Lendlease’s expertise, in the Americas and across the globe, is in shaping cities through the creation and delivery of innovative, sustainable property and infrastructure solutions, as well as strong and connected communities. By leveraging synergies across its three integrated operating segments – Development, Construction and Investments – the firm is uniquely positioned to deliver projects on any scale, from conception to completion.

Led by Denis Hickey, Americas CEO and Global COO, the Americas business has a deep roster of experienced executives and subject matter experts who can serve as sources on a variety of timely topics, including:

  • Placemaking and Value Creation: For Lendlease, placemaking is much more than an industry buzzword. Through the creation of people-centric, planet-centric developments, the firm generates long-term value for communities by achieving measurable social, environmental and economic outcomes through urban regeneration. This is exemplified by the firm’s completed and under-construction developments in gateway cities including New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco, where it is transforming underutilized sites into destinations. With the aim to bring vibrancy back to urban cores, Lendlease currently has $114 billion in urban regeneration projects in its global pipeline.
  • Sustainability: Lendlease is leading the growth of sustainability within the real estate industry, with a framework informed by strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals. As a 1.5°C-aligned company, Lendlease incorporates innovative strategies, such as including climate-resilient features in ground-up developments, to limit global warming and achieve Mission Zero – a commitment to being absolute net zero by 2040. In addition to its climate-focused target, Lendlease is targeting the creation of $250 million of social value by 2025.
  • Life Sciences: Lendlease partners with best-in-class capital institutions for future life science developments and has forged relationships with leading biotechnology, pharmaceutical, academic, healthcare and other stakeholders in this emerging sector, having built more than 500 life science and research facilities in the U.S. alone, comprising over 18 million square feet.
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: DEI is top of mind for Lendlease and Denis Hickey has signed the CEO Action Pledge, showcasing Lendlease’s mission to support a more inclusive workplace and to rally the business community to do the same. Lendlease has a broad range of initiatives and resources to keep DEI at the forefront of its culture.

We look forward to sharing news about Lendlease and its real estate expertise. For more information on the company, please visit the Lendlease website, or contact the following Taylor Johnson representatives:

Emily Johnson, President
