Daily News Commercial Real Estate Seminar Highlights Future of Memphis

Eric Barnes, publisher of The Daily News, opened the Nov. 5th Commercial Real Estate Seminar with a nod to the attendees, "This is our best attended seminar series, and I’m sure today’s panelists will not disappoint."

McLean Wilson of Kemmons Wilson Inc., headlined as the keynote.  Since 2011, McLean has been leading the re-development efforts of the Sears Crosstown Redevelopment Project in Memphis.  During his address, McLean spoke about the importance of the mix-use space at Crosstown Concourse and its intentional collaboration between the arts, education, and healthcare.

The overarching theme to the group of presentations was that Memphis is a city on the rise and of choice for many investors. In fact, Brian Whaley of CBRE Memphis noted that there is over one million square feet of retail space planned or currently under construction, and we continue to see investors from outside of Memphis bring new life to the community.

In addition to Wilson and Whaley, other event panelists included Tim Mashburn of Colliers International, Jimmy Ringel of Makowsky Ringel Greenberg, and Kemp Conrad of Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Advisors LLC.

A crowd of over 250 gathered for the #MEMCRE event at the Brooks Museum.  To read further coverage of this event, visit the Memphis Daily News website.
