2010: aka, 2009
|Next year will be just like ‘09, CBRE sr. managing director Mark Fewin tells us. (Does this mean another Twilight movie?) In the Metroplex, that isn’t terrible, he concedes, but sustainable growth doesn’t appear to be in the big picture.|
The rectangular stack-styled 2100 Ross Avenue, formerly the San Jacinto Tower, which CBRE calls home. (It also handles leasing; eight 30k-SF floors are available.) Mark says most companies are evaluating their real estate costs, and landlords, too, are in the game as they look to retain occupancy. Big picture: North Texas has been fortunate to hold its own in jobs; however, Mark says he hasn't seen nor anticipate any near term sustainable growth.
|Project coordinator April Bailey must be showing Mark, managing director Blair Oden, and SVP Chris Hipps a YouTube video to get such smiles. Or a list of some of CBRE’s biggest DFW clients: 7-Eleven, IBM, Baylor Health Care System, Concentra Healthcare, Comerica Bank, Alcatel, AT&T, HP Enterprise Services, Nokia Siemens Networks, and Dr Pepper Snapple Group. Mark’s smiles may have been induced by Texas Tech football, which managed a squeaker by Baylor, for a respectable 8-4 record.|
