Share Article

Public Television Program “Front page” Hosted by James Earl Jones Explores the Rising World of Commercial Real Estate.

Acclaimed stage and screen actor, James Earl Jones, hosts a new public television program reporting on a range of topics, including hearing aids and eco-friendly architecture. In the short-form documentary series' newest piece, industry professionals educate viewers on the growing commercial sector of the real estate market.

Sometime after the second World War, populations in the U.S. began to idealize the freedom that life in a single-family home in suburban America had to offer, even if it meant long commutes to work every day. However, since the 1970's, populations have shifted back toward the city center, with urban America reaching a 12% growth rate from 2000-2010. This urbanization trend is happening across the country as younger and retiring generations aim to retake advantage of the amenities offered by city living, from culture, retail outlets, and independence from vehicles.

As purveyors of once meaningless metropolitan property, the commercial real estate market has reaped benefits from this new populace migration. To accommodate the influx of residents, companies have begun a mass urban redevelopment movement that includes construction of what is called “mixed use developments.” These downtown compounds house everything from office space, residences, and retailers, making it possible for a person to work, live and play all in one building.

“Front Page” works to effectively educate audiences with high-quality programming, created by an award-winning production team and offered through public television distribution. It's independently distributed to many stations, including PBS Member Public Television stations.
