GREEN, GREEN, GREEN!
Drum roll! We’ll begin to unveil the Bisnow "35 Under 35" list Monday. As a reminder, this extraordinary group will be recognized at the Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman offices on the evening of May 15, co-hosted by Land America, Reznick Group, Clark Construction, and 3DG Design and Architecture. All nominees will be invited. Special thanks to Maureen Dwyer, Pillsbury DC managing partner, for her hospitality; and to noted developer Jair Lynch, age 35, who will serve as honorary chairman of the event. And thanks to four distinguished Over 35 leaders of the real estate community who helped us pore over nominations—to whom we gave breakfast muffins and promised anonymity.
Must be spring–green is everywhere, even at accounting firm symposia!
Bright and early yesterday morning, all these fine people above gathered at the Bethesda office of Reznick [a Bisnow on Business sponsor] for their first "Green Development Roundtable." So what if it was actually a rectangular table?
They got to hear about sustainable design from SmithGroup's Russell Perry, photovoltaics and solar thermal from Mondial Energy's Patty Hargreaves, green financing from Evolution Partners' Dan Winters, and lots on tax credits from Reznick's own David Kessler and Don Nimey.
From left, Hines Managing Director Matt Hurson, strategic planner Cellerino Carlos Bernardino, and Wharton School DC alumni club president (and lawyer) Alan Schlaifer. Alan says the Wharton club is planning a green business summit this fall. In answer to our probing question about how he lives his personal life green, he pointed to Kiwi fruit on his breakfast plate.
Also attending was Fannie Mae's Angelique Brunner, left, who speadheads the housing giant’s green initiatives (including new investment guidelines), here with Reznick's Stacie Benes and McFarlane Partners' Brad Dockser.
