Realogic was on hand as Bisnow held their Property Management and Office of the Future panel discussion in the Grand Ballroom on the 16th floor of the Trump Tower late last month. The Property Management panel discussion, hosted by Don Shapiro of Foresite Realty Partners, touched on several points regarding the increased responsibilities that future property managers will face; technical savvy over operational knowledge, financial acumen, increasing value of common spaces, tenant retention, shorter lease terms, decrease in square footage per employee trend.

At the end of the discussion, Don handed over a crystal ball, which looked suspiciously like a water glass and asked each panelist to summarize their thoughts on the future of Property Management.

Memorable Moments at the REFF Holiday Party

Union Station is mainly used as a transportation hub for Chicagoland commuters. Many pass through the Grand Hall without stopping to consider that the massive room is one of the greatest indoor spaces in the United States. Originally designed by architect Daniel Burnham and completed in 1925 by the Graham, Anderson, Probst & White Firm, the Great Hall became famous when its southern staircase was used during the memorable baby carriage scene in the 1987 movie 'The Untouchables'. While Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro and Sean Connery were not "on set" the evening of December 5th, another memorable scene was created in Union Station's Grand Hall when REFF hosted their 2013 Holiday Party.
