It’s interesting to look at how we’ve evolved and grown through our lives, to see how our priorities shift, our friend groups expand, how geography separates us and it can almost feel impossible to keep in touch with those we’ve met along our journey. Despite the incredible advancements in technology making it easy to connect with people, we still let ourselves feel so disconnected. “Let’s keep in touch” has unfortunately become a throwaway comment we say to one another as a conclusion to a conversation – but how often do we actually follow through? Getting caught up in the moment with an old colleague or client can leave us with genuine feelings of wanting to keep in touch, but the rigours of everyday life can override those priorities and put it on the backburner.

Coronavirus Disrupts Major Projects

Article | March 26, 2020

As most of us have adjusted to the new reality brought on by the coronavirus (COVID-19), developers and lenders are forced to look at the resulting economic shut down on ongoing real estate projects. When this virus first started making the news late last year, few people anticipated that it would turn into a global pandemic that would virtually shut down world economic markets. In the real estate world, when this did happen, it was easy to predict that the deals that had not yet been signed, would come to a stop and/or be terminated, and that deals that had been signed would be paused and extended.
