Meet the Press
Yesterday, The Association of Industrial Real Estate Brokers also held its monthly luncheon at the Rosewood (no, we didn't just hang out there all day). Members of the organization had the opportunity to meet panelists from the local real estate press. We snapped Union National Bank's Jay Deihs and Meridian Design/Build's Peter Stadler and Peter Schmidt. Meridian just completed the buildout of two post offices in Chicago and Carol Stream.
Crain's reporters Steve Daniels and Eddie Baeb said that the most interesting and the most overdone story they'd worked on all year was the state of banks and financial markets. Steve compared the economy to a horror movie: You know it's going to keep getting worse until the end, when you hope the killer won't wake up.
