Robert Manekin Title: Managing Director & Principal Company: Colliers International | Baltimore Type of brokerage firm: Full Service Your specialty representation: Tenant Representation & Corporate Services Education: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (BA); University of Maryland School of Law (JD) About your company : Colliers International is a global com- mercial real estate services firm with nearly 15,000 professionals operating in 445 offices in 62 countries. Revenues exceed $2 Billion. About your team: I work with an incredibly talented and committed group of young professionals. Colliers VP Nadia Kahler is our team’s transaction manager. Special- ists include Ryan Miller, Tyler Boykin, Mike Ruocco, and Colin Penoyar. We recently added a former leasing representative from Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT) to expand our listing activities – Vice President Jon Manekin. Current overview of 2014 real estate market: The 2014 office real estate market in Baltimore City has experienced significant growth and positive absorption of space this year. While the overall downtown Baltimore vacancy rate is in the mid-teens, the Pratt Street, Harbor East, Canton and Locust Point submarkets have vacancy rates below10%. Brief forecast on 2015 commercial real estate market in your region: The office leasing market in our region is tied to specific economic conditions in the re- gion’s various submarkets. Office leasing in the Baltimore Washington Corridor will remain strong. Owings Mills and Baltimore County West remain healthy. The I-83 Corridor has some challenges, particularly in Towson. However there is good activ- ity and absorption in Hunt Valley and even White Marsh. Harford County is dealing with excess capacity due to the lack of BRAC activity and jobs. Downtown Baltimore will have to sort out the impact of the relocation of Exelon to Harbor East (Scheduled for 2016 and impacting on 250,000 s/f) and the M&T Bank decision to stay at 25 S. Charles or relocate. Both situations are impacting on tenants in the market and caus- ing significant pre-leasing in a market that does not pre-lease space. Most notable deals/sales or lease transaction of 2014: Colliers represented the Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund (65,000 s/f / 15 year term) and brokered the sale of 8601 Robert Fulton Drive in Columbia. Other notable deals include Pandora’s 10 year headquarters lease at 250 W. Pratt (JLL and C&W). Key to your success in 2014: Creative structuring of transactions, client centric problem solving, and great teamwork. Robert Manekin
