August is nearly over and things have clearly been busy. I am back at it after an extended pseudo vacation in the high mountains of Colorado, which I highly recommend to all.
For the Fall I am announcing a few new additions to the blog which I think will help to extend the value and interest. First will be guest posts from professionals across the commercial real estate spectrum from investors to brokers and third party vendors. The goal being to provide valuable insight and ideas well beyond my experience. Second, I am going to add a new section to discuss and consider topics specific to Urban Planning and Design. My goal here is to provide a forum for discussions on local and national design considerations and topics. Ranging from density and car based architecture to streetscape and pedestrian oriented design. Third I am working on adding a podcast to the site which I hope to expand into interviews and discussions on all things commercial and city related.
Additionally it was brought to my attention that a number of you do not have subscriptions to the Times and as such miss out on the posts regarding local news stories. In order to make these posts more useful to everyone I will be adding general discussion of the posted articles and then proving a link at the end of the post if you want to reference the specific article. Hopefully this will provide a more cohesive reading experience for everyone.
I am very excited to be expanding the offerings and very much looking forward to your feedback. As always email your comments, feedback, suggestions and thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org and thank you for reading. – M.D.
