The Bright Realty team recently returned from the 2012 International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Â“RECONÂ” convention, the worldÂ’s largest event for real estate professionals in the shopping center industry. The event drew more than 30,000 professionals to the Las Vegas Convention Center May 20 through May 23, 2012.
Twelve members of the Bright team manned the companyÂ’s 800 square foot, high-tech booth which drew attention with its impressive display of logos from Bright Realty tenants such as Einstein BagelÂ’s, Smashburger and Tutti Frutti. Real estate professionals who visited the booth also learned about the companyÂ’s exciting new project, The Bridges at Castle Hills, with detailed renderings of the 1.5 million square foot mixed-use project. Slated to break ground in 2013, The Bridges at Castle Hills features a 70,000 square foot luxury Cinetopia theater as well as more than 425,000 square feet for retail and restaurant, 540,000 plus square feet for office, more than 1,000 residential loft units and 154 boutique hotel rooms.
Â“RECON offered an opportunity for us to make some new contacts as well as spread the word about The Bridges and our properties all over the Dallas-Fort Worth area,Â” said Eric Stanley, managing director. Â“We are pre-leasing Phase III of the Castle Hills Village Shops and Plaza and seeking the right tenants for more than 400,000 square feet of third party leasing assignments and 50 pad sites.
Â“Bright Realty clients benefit from more than 60 years in the real estate business,Â” added Stanley. Â“ICSC is the premier global trade association of the shopping center industry, with 60,000 members, and it was valuable to be able to share that message in person.Â”
