|Can you see yourself in this room? Because you were likely there based on the numbers we hear showed up to ULI's 2012Philadelphia forecast earlier this month. ULI's David Ricci tells us the organization pulled in close to 600 CRE pros to the event. And that may be a sign of just how much healthier the industry is. “We haven't seen those numbers since '05, '06,” he says.|
|Here we have David smiling with The Flynn Co's Mike Post and M&T Bank's Steve Blank (also a ULI senior fellow for capital markets).
