Regular readers know that I usually post something to Tales of Two Cities at least once a day. Yesterday was the exception. It wasn’t for a lack of subject matter but rather a lack of time.
During the economic slowdown over the past two years commercial real estate brokers have been sort of like the Maytag repairman. This pause in real work related activity provided ample opportunity for other creative pursuits such as this blog and our podcast. With the real job beginning to ramp back up, there are going to some days, like yesterday, that something has to give.
The good news is that we are getting busy again. Our office building development in Emerson is coming into the home stretch. Almost a year after breaking ground we are nearing the end of the base building construction phase. The project is scheduled for “shell completion” at the end of September.
Shell completion means that now a tenant can begin “fitting out” the interior of the building to suit their needs and we are actively engaged in negotiations with prospective prospects to do just that. This is what we’ve worked towards for the last three years since we purchased the ten acre site.
That is not to say that I intend to slow down here either. I just need to figure out how to squeeze a few more hours into my day.
