Mike De Rouin, CSI, CCCA Joins Panel at Illinois Real Estate Journal’s Metro-Chicago Apartment Summit

Earlier this week, firm President Mike De Rouin, CSI CCCA was invited to speak as part of a panel entitled “Demands of Today’s Tenants / Adding Value to Your Assets” at the Illinois Real Estate Journal and Midwest Real Estate News Magazine’s Metro-Chicago Apartment Summit at Germania Place in Chicago. The discussion focused primarily on the increased demand for amenities and how developers (and brokers) are responding, as well as a large focus on Transit-Oriented Developments (TODs). As the sole design professional on the panel, Mike provided interesting balance to the other panelists’ brokerage and development backgrounds on the marketability of building features and impacts of ordinances on the development outlook.
