The owner wants to turn the project over to a management company to manage. If IRR is used to see how well the manager does what is considered the equity investment to use at the starting point in year 11?

It needs to be the market value at the time, not the original purchase price.

So, to break down, the current market value is essentially the original purchase price, plus the opportunity cost.
