SIOR TALKS TAXES
Deloitte's Justin Schultz (center, with CBRE's Dave Prioletti and George Maragos) filled in SIOR members on what might happen after FASB 13 goes into effect. Big takeway: more companies could buy real estate so they won't carry the lease on their balance sheets. The topic then switched from giving money to the government to giving money to charity (no, they're not synonymous): CBRE just announced its Chicago office is teaming up with Rebuilding Together to upgrade Maria Shelter and Vincennes Senior Center next week. More than 250 volunteers from the company will paint, replace light bulbs, and build wheelchair ramps at the facilities.
