REACH Social Raises $280k for City of Hope

Bisnow joined over 1,200 CRE pros at the 16th annual REACH Social at the House of Blues (we wouldn't miss it) and caught up with the event's organizers. We snapped Bisnow's Jonathan Hobfoll (overdressed as usual), Leopardo's Ruben Ruban, Golub & Co's Lee Golub, and Leopardo's Rick Dupraw. Rick and Lee were co-chairs of the event, which raised $280k to benefit pioneering research in cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS taking place at City of Hope. Of course, we had a little time to talk about real estate, too, and Lee told us that Golub is getting ready to break ground on its next high-rise rental development in Streeterville. It's also at work on a South Loop high-rise residential development and developments in Phoenix, Tempe, and San Francisco.
