The Connecticut CCIM Chapter recently held a successful case study and mixer event at Quarry Walk in Oxford, Connecticut. The event pulled nearly 50 real estate professionals from across the state and was held in the gorgeous “Residences at Quarry Walk”. Attendees enjoyed an intimate discussion with developer Tom Haynes and Kathy Ekstrom, Development Manager for Haynes Group. They spoke on how the project came to be and struggles along the way, including the complete destruction by fire of the residence building just prior to occupancy. The group also learned how CCIM CI102 concepts and tools were applied in making the Quarry Walk development a success. The group also learned how CCIM board member and instructor, Stanley Gnizadowski, CRE, CCIM, played a major role showing the market demand and feasibility for such a project of this scale. Discussion highlighted the vibrant retail, medical and office tenant mix and how the project created an exciting town center for Oxford. The event concluded with tours of several luxury residential units available for lease.
