It is more important than ever to ensure a mixed use project is properly planned to meet the needs of the community.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
SRS Real Estate Partners and Cypress Equities CEO, Chris Maguire is set to lead a roundtable discussion at this year’s OAC ICSC Open Air Summit being held at The Ritz-Carlton Dallas from February 29-March 2. Roundtable discussions are scheduled for Thursday and Friday morning of the conference and are highly anticipated each year by conference attendees.
Maguire will be leading the discussion “What makes a mixed-use center successful when so many are failing in today’s environment?” As the CEO of both SRS and Cypress Equities, Chris brings insight from a brokerage as well as development perspective to this discussion. Maguire plans to engage his roundtable participants by analyzing the success of an example development, West 7th in Fort Worth, Texas. In this discussion he plans to cover market review, land selection, plan development, team selection, leasing, and other aspects of creating a successful retail center.
“I’m looking forward to leading a discussion on a topic of which retail developers have been greatly impacted over the last few years,” said Maguire. “With very limited new development on the horizon, it is more important than ever to ensure a mixed use project is properly planned to meet the needs of the community where it is being built.”
Maguire serves as CEO and chairman of the board for both SRS Real Estate Partners and Cypress Equities. As an SRS co-founder, he is responsible for growing the company into a leading retail real estate services provider with over 250 employees and offices in 22 metropolitan areas in the U.S. Maguire founded Cypress Equities and has overseen its growth over the past 15 years. Today Cypress Equities operates five regional offices in the U.S. and specializes in real estate asset, development, and fund management.
