Timing worked well in scheduling Bob Lux, principal at Alatus, to speak at the Real Estate Executive Insight Series. When this session was scheduled in December of 2010, a casino in Block E had not been put on the table. Alatus had purchased Block E but no plans had been released about how they were going to improve upon the troubled area. By the time Bob came in to speak in March, it was all over the news. Bob spoke about how he got into the business and other development projects he completed such as Grand Park Condominiums and the Carlyle Condominiums. Here is a recap of the event:
The redevelopment of Block E was clearly a big topic in 2011. Two of our most read blog posts talked about the project. If you haven’t read it already, Best of Real Estate Matters #9 – A Deal Alatus Could Not Refuse talks about the history of the Block E site.
