Could leasing offices qualify as an EB-5 investment?

Could lease payments be considered as EB-5 capital investment? For example, if I lease three offices for 10 years for $800K and pay the total (800 K) at the start of the lease term. Please note I am not the owner of the said offices.

The key of EB-5 is job creation. If managing a leasing office can create at least 10 new jobs, it may qualify as an EB-5 investment.

Are you also creating 10 new jobs based on the investment? I would need to investigate – doesn’t feel like a “project” to me.

If you have a company who will lease an office to operate a business and hire 10 people, it will work.
