Office and Commercial
The Office and Commercial Initiative Council is formerly known as the Places of Commerce Council.
Communities must have a strong, diverse commercial sector to be economically viable. The provision of the space for the commercial sector will be examined by this Council through best practice research. The Initiative Council will explore the design, development, rehab/re-use, financing, acquisition, asset management, and the latest trends and innovations in these asset classes: office parks, high-rise office, creative office, shopping centers, specialty/strip centers, restaurant centers, i.e. outdoor food courts with retail/entertainment, industrial parks and warehousing/R&D/manufacturing.
