Kyle Hough – City Club Apartments

When a city’s storm water system gets backed up, it’s only a matter of time before the problem makes itself known. For City Club Apartments, a backup of rainwater in Royal Oak, Michigan, led to the flooding of 60 units in one of its buildings last summer. As the company’s regional facilities director, Kyle Hough […]

Rick Fox – Timberland Partners

When Rick Fox saw kids using a bike park recently, he couldn’t help but feel proud. As they raced around the colorful tracks, the kids showed Fox the impact of his work with their laughter and smiles. The director of facilities management for Timberland Partners likes knowing the features he adds to apartment complexes are […]

Ben Butler – Greystar

It’s the Wild West indeed when it comes to rental housing. So many incomers from all demographics, and while there’s not necessarily a shortage of apartment complexes and villages in Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico, there is—in Ben Butler’s colorful words—an amenity war raging. The landlord who can provide the most comforts and conveniences will […]

Santiago Quiroz – Campus Life & Style

Growing up in an economically depressed neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas, was not ideal, says Santiago Quiroz. Following high school, he saw no real opportunities and he almost got in trouble. That all changed when he joined the U.S. military—first the Navy and then the Army—serving just shy of 10 years. There, the variety and […]

Noting his employer is a global leader in the investment, development and redevelopment, and management of […]

William Colby – Lincoln Property Company

He’s the kind who’d rather repair than replace. There’s always something worth keeping in an old building, William Colby is wont to say. Not only does it save his employer and property owners money, it may also be easier to maintain than some new gadget that can’t be readily installed in a legacy system. Nowadays, […]

Sandy Bole – Jamison Properties

In the heart of Koreatown, located in Los Angeles along Wilshire Boulevard, Korean BBQ restaurants, nightlife and historic architecture have all played a role in the neighborhood’s continued growth. Jamison Properties and 26-year-old Director of Construction Sandy Bole are finding new ways to build up, literally—by increasing density in what’s already one of the densest […]

Justin Smith – Greystar

He’s adept at juggling high-stakes projects with strict timelines and sometimes dealing with inherent geological challenges in the process. Such as in 2018, when Justin Smith was overseeing the development of student housing projects in both Fort Collins, Colorado, and Honolulu. Laying down a sprawling slab foundation in northern Colorado didn’t present too many challenges, […]

T.C. Selman – Aspen Heights Partners

Y2K, the millennium cyber bug, was quickly dismissed after the clock struck midnight on December 31, 1999. As far as global crises go, COVID-19 has more than made up for it, creating an economic and personal disaster scenario for businesses around the world, especially in the development and building industries. Billions of dollars were spent […]
