AC Client Viewpoint: Stabilizing the Real Estate Market Post-COVID-19

Tags : 

The president of AC client RIDC writes about how to encourage real estate development activities post-COVID-19 in an article for Pittsburgh Business Times:

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, and a lengthy recession looks like a strong possibility, real estate development is going to grind to a halt. We can begin creating the conditions that will facilitate its re-emergence now, but it will require government and developers to work together.

Nothing local governments do today is going to counteract a global recession, but they can use this time to implement technology upgrades and create new human processes, so that when market forces turn positive, there are fewer impediments to a robust response from the private sector.

Streamlining the current building permitting process is a crucial first step to encouraging development activities post-COVID-19.

Pittsburgh Quarterly on Mill 19: A Magnificent Blend of Past and Future in Hazelwood

Tags : 

Pittsburgh Quarterly features AC client RIDC’s hallmark redevelopment of Mill 19.

Steel-era Pittsburgh is like ancient Rome. We too could go several more centuries before restoring the old ruins to the magnificence of their original capacity, and the reconnection to the Hazelwood neighborhood itself is still a stretch that no single building can solve. The triumph here that will encourage continuing growth is that no other building could convey simultaneously the stunning collapse and the ambitious transformation quite the way this one does.

AC Client: Attention, Boeing—Marketing isn’t Risk Management

Tags : 

Nir Kossovsky, CEO of Steel City Re, an AC client, pens an opinion piece for FOX Business. An excerpt:

Boeing has a lot of explaining to do before it can regain the trust of stakeholders—politicians and regulators, airlines, passengers and flight crews alike. Its self-analysis cannot be superficial, nor can the solutions it employs. Marketing alone—without the essential benefits of operational improvement and comprehensive enterprise risk management—will only lead to disappointment and fuel skepticism about whether the company actually gets it.
