Dallas, TX, October 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Garfield Traub, a leading public developer specializing in the use of public private partnerships for U.S. developments, recently created a “Public Private Development” group on LinkedIn that has grown to over 550 professionals in just the first 6 months. The members consist of public and private sector decision makers specializing in site identification and acquisition, zoning and entitlement, design and construction, leasing, investment, financing, management and asset management, as well as professionals such as general contractors, architects, engineers, mortgage brokers, investment bankers, lenders, investors, and specialty consultants.
"I could not be happier with the success of our LinkedIn group and the quality of information that has been provided by others so far," said group facilitator and Principal of Garfield Traub Ray Garfield. "The group has turned into such an essential tool for professionals like me who are involved in the development process and for those looking for other professionals to assist them in their commercial real estate developments."
The rapid growth of the term Public Private Development can be attributed to the popularity and success of those using Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) to obtain the essential funding needed to renew and repair government infrastructure, improve transportation, and construct new projects that state, local and Federal governments could not afford before due to budget constraints.
Because of the importance and rapid growth of using PPPs in today's developments, Garfield Traub decided to create and facilitate a Public Private Development group within LinkedIn. The group specializes in helping public and private sector decision makers involved in building developments to connect with others in both the decision making and facilitation process of their developments.
“Garfield Traub’s goals are that professionals have the ability to both gain and give answers to public private development questions and to have the ability to share their resources to help others succeed,” said Mr. Garfield. “In an economy like today where government budget constraints have made financing and development of essential facilities difficult, it is more crucial than ever for us to band together and find ways we can emerge from this recession and help each other and our clients succeed.”
Garfield Traub’s Public Private Development LinkedIn group is free to all those interested in joining. If you or anyone you know are involved in any part of the commercial real estate development process and have resources to share and questions to ask involving public private partnerships, we encourage you to join and see what the group is all about.
