Hey WUREC folks,

Hope everyone is doing well.

We're hosting a Zoom panel on the state of the office industry on Wednesday, February 24 at 2 pm EST (11 am PST). We have about ~200 folks registered with lots of folks from the Wharton alumni group, but I thought I'd share with undergrads as well.

Feel free to RSVP via the Eventbrite link below and feel free to forward to folks who are in the office sector who could add to the conversation.

See details below:

What will the post pandemic world look like for employers and employees? Come join us for a discussion on the state of the office world.

The panel will be moderated by Ryo Ishida of Rainbow Capital Partners. See below for the panelists:

Kim Hourihan: Kim is the Chief Investment Officer for the Americas for CBRE Global Investors. CBRE manages $115 billion in assets under management across all products and markets.

Michael Johnston: Michael is a Partner at Menlo Equities, a real estate private equity firm based in Menlo Park, CA. They primarily focus on office/R&D, data center, lab and industrial properties in innovation hub markets across the United States.

Robert Sammons: Robert is the Northwest Regional Director of research at Cushman & Wakefield. He’ll provide some statistics on the state of the office in key markets like San Francisco and New York.

Craig Zodikoff: Craig is a Managing Principal at Cresa. Cresa is one of the largest tenant rep brokerage firms in the world.

This looks like a great way to get a potential scholarship to a program that helps prepare college students for internships and first jobs in commercial real estate.

Would appreciate if you could fill out the survey below for our management class project and help out a fellow RE club member
Thanks

Has anyone looked at the Amazon RFP and where in Philadelphia sites might be available for an Amazon HQ2?
Does anyone have Study.net materials for REAL 209 (Real Estate Investment) or REAL 398 (Real Estate Entrepreneurship)? Would very much appreciate it, trying to learn more about real estate.
