The answers to these questions can vary from one study to another, depending on the type of data being used. We looked at five studies conducted within the past three years; here, we list the 17 American cities (in no particular order) that were included in at least one of the studies.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/research-data/17-most-dynamic-american-cities" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/research-data/17-most-dynamic-american-cities#comments Chicago Los Angeles New York News Research & Data San Francisco Fri, 18 Jul 2014 16:01:00 +0000 1048441 at http://nreionline.com 10 Disrupters: Striving for Balance http://nreionline.com/people/10-disrupters-striving-balance <div class="field-byline"> David Bodamer </div> <div class="field-deck"> Atalanta’s Jennifer Taylor seeks success in male-heavy CRE space. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>Unlike many smaller platforms, Atalanta’s principals have both asset and property level management experience.

It’s supposedly a simple, straightforward sector. It’s an asset class that delivers income and some appreciation in property values. And it’s an overall safe investment. Yet beneath the surface, the industry is transforming in many ways. Players rise and fall. New tactics emerge. The use of technology can affect funding and financing. In other words, there are always disruptions taking place. Here we profile 10 disrupters (actually 11, since one profile is of the two principals of one firm).hese disrupters include some familiar names and some new ones. They underscore key trends—urbanization of retail, crowdfunding, microapartments and the reemergence of CMBS, to name a few. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/people/10-disrupters-individuals-who-are-charting-future-commercial-real-estate" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/people/10-disrupters-individuals-who-are-charting-future-commercial-real-estate#comments Brokerage CMBS Development Finance & Investment Medical Office Multifamily News Office People Retail West Mobile Alert Fri, 18 Jul 2014 14:10:00 +0000 1039071 at http://nreionline.com What’s the Smart Move for PetSmart? http://nreionline.com/retail/what-s-smart-move-petsmart <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>Recent activity has generated a lot of discussion within both the retail and <span class='keyword_link'><a href="/finance-investment?intlink=incontent " title="Commercial Real Estate Finance & Investment">investment</a></span> community about PetSmart’s future.
