STAMFORD, CT—Having advocated in recent months for change at Taubman Centers, Land and Buildings Investment Management is now taking its efforts a step further. The Stamford, CT-based firm has launched a proxy solicitation in advance of the mall REIT’s upcoming annual meeting, seeking to install two of its own candidates on the Taubman board, including Jonathan Litt, Land & Buildings’ founder and CIO. Litt filed a proxy statement Tuesday with the SEC ahead of a letter to Taubman shareholders that was made public on Wednesday.
