About the Market Impact Council
This council will explore the opportunities created in our communities by large employers (such as corporations, universities and medical centers) and major market transactions. Discussion will center around economic development impacts that result from these employers and how developers can leverage the demand for supporting industries, housing and commercial real estate. The council will also investigate incentive programs and infrastructure requirements that are necessary to support the growth of these entities.
KARNES was pleased to be in attendance for the Charlotte Business Journal’s Commercial Real Estate Quarterly (CREQ) Live event this morning, which featured Johnny Harris, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lincoln Harris. Mr. Harris provided the audience with a fireside chat, conducted by the Charlotte Business Journal’s Will Boye, covering a range of topics including his involvement in the development of commercial real estate in Ballantyne, SouthPark, and Uptown Charlotte.
The keynote by Mr. Harris was preceded by a lively roundtable discussion involving the winners of the 2013 CRCBR® Deal Makers Awards, an annual awards program officially audited by KARNES. Award winners and panelist included Jensie Teague of Selwyn Property Group, Inc., Rob Pressley of Coldwell Banker Commercial-MECA, Christopher Skibinski of The Skibinski Company, Brian Brtalik of Cusham & Wakefield | Thalhimer, and Phil Brosseau, Jr. of CBRE.
The CREQ Live event is the Charlotte Business Journal’s semi-annual event that brings the Charlotte Business Journal’s Commercial Real Estate Quarterly (CREQ) publication to life. For over 20 years KARNES has been the source for the Charlotte Business Journal’s CREQ exclusive commercial real estate content and looks forward to many more years working together with the Charlotte Business Journal.
