What is #2MSQFT?
What is #2MSQFT? For some of you that question may be literal (frankly, I wasn’t sure what to make of it myself at first) and for others it may be a question about the significance of this “hash tag.” For our marketing team, the idea for #2MSQFT was a combination of enthusiasm for social media tools and a sense of pride in what our company is working on and the optimism we all feel. I certainly share their pride and am, for now, taking their word for it about social media.
Recently, there’s been a lot to feel good about in the Washington D.C. region. Retail leasing is picking-up. We’re seeing this across all of our property types throughout Maryland and Northern Virginia. Residential sales volume throughout the region has picked up, as our vice president of residential development, Stuart Prince, noted in a recent blog post. And we’re being approached with new development opportunities in both Office and Retail - like the recently announced partnership with DRI to develop one of the most significant new projects in the region – Rock Spring Centre. Needless to say, it’s been an exciting first few months of the year. We’re hitting on all cylinders and looking forward to the months ahead.
So back to #2MSQFT. What does it mean? For us, it represents a robust development pipeline and renewed optimism for commercial real estate and our company. Join the conversation here or on Twitter, our Facebook page or LinkedIn and see what it means to others as well. I look forward to continuing the dialogue at ICSC RECon.
