Increasingly, commercial real estate and crowded places have become common targets for terrorist actions. Despite this, little empirical research exists explaining how such locations could be made more resilient, particularly in the context of new developments. The research presented in this article contributes to the literature by identifying what may potentially incentivize real estate developments to include counterterrorism protective security measures in future commercial real estate and crowded places schemes. The research is based on 142 interviews conducted in the United Kingdom, United States, and Australia, with the findings highlighting that incentivization is both complex and varied.
