The COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on the commercial real estate industry, propelling some sectors, like warehouse and distribution, and dealing setbacks to others, including office space.
Despite all the turmoil and uncertainty, major investments remain underway in Greater Hartford that will help add to the region’s economic vibrancy, including the addition of new, highly-amenitized apartments, distribution facilities and mixed-use retail/office space.
In this week’s issue, Hartford Business Journal is publishing its inaugural Power 25 Real Estate list, which identifies leaders who are having a major impact on the region’s commercial real estate and economic development scene.
This isn’t an awards section. HBJ’s Power 25 Real Estate class was chosen by HBJ’s news team. To make the list, individuals must not only be in a position of power, they need to wield it in such a way to have a significant impact on our community.
The listing includes a mix of established players as well as some fresh faces. They are brokers, developers and others who influence commercial development in our region.
As this is our first time doing this special issue, we’re curious to know what you think. Feel free to send feedback.
Power 25 Real Estate will be back next year with some new names and fresh faces, so be prepared to make suggestions.
