Both Parkway Properties and Highwoods Properties are shopping for more CRE in Atlanta (maybe something exciting and fresh for beach season?). Some 600  heard from them directly yesterday at our 3rd Atlanta Real Estate Summit at the Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead.

Both Highwoods' Jim Bacchetta and Parkway's  John Barton say their firms are poised to chase office product, including possibly some Atlanta properties now for sale. ?With  all the assets on the market, particuarly in Atlanta, you're going to see Parkway  get aggressive  there,? John says. He also notes that Parkway's purchase of 3344 Peachtree last year (in conjunction with Texas Teachers) at a record price was ?transformative? for the company.

Greenstone Properties' De Little (dressed down without his hunting rifle) had something to celebrate as the City of Alpharetta approved of the Avalon mixed-use  project (a JV with North American Properites where Greenstone will develop the office component) earlier this week. De notes that in approving the $600M development, ?What we saw Monday night is a council and a staff that has  turned the corner  and come back to where they were in the mid-1990s? in being more  pro-growth than they were in the past decade. ?Avalon is going to be so cool  that people are going to want to be there.?

Ackerman & Co's Chadd Evans says his firm has ?pretty much worked through our old deals? that had  loan maturities in 2009 and 2010. Ackerman didn't lose any assets and is now focused on stabilizing them. The firm also has been on a shopping spree, purchasing some five deals last year, including two medical office buildings. But Chadd notes that it's  harder to find product  when return expectations are high.
