To Be Respected And To Respect
Since winning in the Industrial Lease category at the NAIOP Commercial Real Estate Awards of Excellence, Beedie Development Group industrial president Todd Yuen says the reaction he has been receiving shows just how tight the commercial estate community in Vancouver really is. “While we are all competitors in some respects, there is a ton of mutual respect and in many cases, close friendships,” Todd tells Bisnow.

The Damco industrial lease deal in New Westminster was quarterbacked by Beedie after Damco came to them needing a new site. In the image is the new 45k SF logistics centre. “There are a lot of people in our organization that need to be acknowledged for their contribution they make to every deal, like Damco,” he says. “Being recognized gives you the chance to share the moment with everyone from our IT department to our workers on site who actually do all the heavy lifting.”
