Four Generations at Work Implications for Your Office and Your Building

The real estate students from the Universities of St. Cloud and St. Thomas – members of “Gen Y” – will join us for our monthly meeting as we discuss the workplace implications of four generations working side-by-side. Each generation’s attitudes, work habits, and expectations of the work environment – including coworkers and bosses – is different. That has implications for the effectiveness of your team, how we provide company training, continuing education, customer/tenant service and how we attract and retain both employees and tenants.

Annual Student Reception

October 16 meeting is also our annual Student & The Reception. Every October BOMA invites the graduating

Stephen Shepard, Executive Director of BOMA Oakland/ East Bay, will provide insights into the differences of these four generations and what you can do to leverage those differences to create a dynamic and effective team. Because this program is not strictly applicable to commercial real estate, the Minnesota Commerce Department has not approved continuing education credits, but the program will be valuable to you and to the students we mentor!

Wednesday, October 16 Note date shift. 11:30 AM Sign-in and networking; 12:00 - 1:30 PM Program WHERE: Millennium Hotel; 1313 Nicollet Mall in Downtown Minneapolis COST:

Members:$45 ($35 if you register by noon on Friday, October 11.) Nonmembers: $50. Same day registration (if available): Members $50, Nonmembers $60.

students from the real estate programs of St. Cloud State University and the University of St. Thomas to join us for our luncheon program. We ask all Regular Members (property owners and managers) to host a student – paying for the student’s lunch and visiting with them about their own experiences in commercial real estate. This is an opportunity to provide guidance, mentoring, and encouragement to young people who hope to enter our industry. It also might provide the opportunity to make connections with your company’s next great job candidate!

In recent years we have counted on all Regular Member attendees to be willing to serve as hosts and pay for a student’s lunch, but as always, if your company – or you – are unable to do so, we ask that you call the BOMA office at 612-338-8627 IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT. Otherwise, register as usual and we’ll match you with a student and send you a confirmation. If you will be hosting a student please plan to arrive by 11:30.

The BOMA Newsletter

Sheila Miller, Editor and Publisher

Here is my two one-hundredths of a cent’s worth…

outreach and improve our offerings each and every day.

Greetings fellow BOMA members,

Throughout the economic downturn of recent years, our BOMA has annually budgeted to provide superior services in the realms of Advocacy, Education and Networking, and our BOMA has worked hard to maintain the line of dues increases whenever and however possible. This upcoming year will be no different. However, in the most recent years, we have increased individual dues from time to time while holding the building dues constant since 2006.

For those of you who have been thoroughly dedicated reading each and every word of the past few newsletters (thank you Sam Black and many others), you have no doubt read about the many educational offerings for commercial real estate professionals offered through our BOMA and through BOMA International. You have no doubt seen the added value to your membership for the advocacy being provided through BOMA on items large and small to make sure our industry receives fair treatment in the press, at the capitals as well as in city halls throughout the region. I am also certain you have taken part in the many networking activities that have taken place over just the past few weeks: • The annual golf outing • The Engineers Association social at Fulton Brewery • The Engineer’s tour of the Convention Center’s largest solar array in the Midwest • The sold out General Meeting on enhancing a vibrant economy And you are certainly planning on attending the incredible Taste of BOMA event at Thresher Square where we will hear from those involved in the proposed Viking’s Stadium and Downtown East development, as well as explore a building constructed in 1900 and how it continues transforming to a modern, efficient building of the future. What I am getting at is relatively simple. Our BOMA has a lot to offer all of us in the Commercial Real Estate industry and our related industries. What is most impressive to me is that our BOMA continues to expand our Page 2

October 2013

For 2014, the Board of Directors has approved a 2.5% increase in building dues, raising the rate from $.0078 per square foot to .008 p.s.f. That amounts to $20 for every 100,000 square feet. This increase is necessary to help pay for insurance, rent and additional advocacy and educational opportunities for the upcoming season. Most importantly, the Board of Directors has agreed to hold the line on all individual dues for 2014. We trust this thoughtful approach will be agreeable to you, our valued co-members, in light of the high value you receive for your membership dollars. Should you have any questions or concerns about the 2014 dues policy, please do not hesitate to call or email me, Kevin Lewis or Sheila Miller, and we will be most happy to discuss with you. Of course, you can always feel free to catch me at the next fantastic BOMA Greater Minneapolis event! Thank you again so very much for your continued engagement with our BOMA!

BOMA Greater Minneapolis and BOMA Greater Saint Paul Present:

Blurring Lines of Life, Work & Play Bringing Your Building’s Future into Focus Research shows that the new workforce wants an entirely different work experience than most buildings are currently designed to provide. How can we create desirable, productive and profitable buildings moving forward? Lines are blurring between work, home, and play time and the buildings of the future will be prepared for that in order to attract and retain tenants – who are increasingly known as “clients.” In this highly interactive seminar, attendees will learn about the forces that are changing “work,” the environments (buildings) that will be successful in a globally competitive real estate market, and how to transform their buildings to prepare for that future.

Board Planning Session Helps Identify BOMA’s Blueprint for Future By Kevin Lewis BOMA Executive Director

relationships among board, staff, or other groups of individuals; to engage in visioning, strategic planning, or goal setting and to simply renew relationships and enthusiasm. As with most associations, our board of directors conducts annual planning sessions to assess the current direction of the organization and to look into the future. Dynamic board retreats have the potential to trigger positive change in the organizational culture and set the tone for success. In-depth strategic thinking is the stuff that causes this favorable change, which can manifest itself in both the introduction of new services and in new processes that are important to the continual improvements of the organization.

On September 12, our board along with Sheila and I, spent the afternoon covering a number of areas to move BOMA forward.

Retreats are held for several reasons: to establish a team spirit and develop stronger working

Strategic Plan Update First, the 2012-2014 Strategic Plan was reviewed and updated. This rolling three-year plan defines our Mission Statement, Mission Strategies and lists the three fundamental organizational goals. Sort of a 30,000 foot view of what we strive to accomplish annually. That said, we are introducing a separate Goals and Objectives document that will focus on specific activities for the next 12 months that we plan to monitor and guide through the completion.

Review of Current Services Next, we spent a good chunk of time reviewing the plethora of events, activities and services we already coordinate each year. As much as it would have been nice to eliminate some items in order to free up time for new endeavors, the vast majority of items listed were deemed ‘mission critical’ representing the need to keep these as foundational activities. New Initiatives Without going too far into all the details, here are a few areas we will be focusing on during the next year: • Enhanced advocacy on issues and heightened engagement by the Government Affairs Committee and our lobbying firm • Review of each committee’s mission and member engagement • New membership

• • • • •

recruitment campaign Upgrades in IT systems New BOMA collateral Establishment of suburban CRE ‘neighborhood’ groups Electronic newsletter More dialogue with BOMA Minnesota group

That’s quite a bit we are chewing off. However, I am confident the BOMA staff in collaboration with our board, all of our committees and membership at-large will work together to reach our goals. The dialogue by the board provided exactly the type of feedback we need to continue to keep BOMA Greater Minneapolis relevant and to serve as a strong voice for commercial real estate. We will retain the core purpose of our organization, yet will instill new or enhanced means to advocate, educate and communicate to you our members. t

Member in The Spotlight: Jim Durda By Lynette Dumalag of Nelson, Tietz & Hoye Board Member and Champion of the Communications Committee

Did you begin your business career in Commercial Real Estate? No, I had two sales jobs before entering RE. Right after graduating from the University of Minnesota I sold for Xerox, then CPT, a locally based minicomputer company. Both were excellent opportunities to learn how a variety of businesses operated, about the office/retail/industrial world, selling above quota, and about myself in a corporate environment. What else did you do before landing at the IDS Center? I got recruited to join a small developer, Woodbridge Properties working for David Weir. We built small but high-end suburban office and office/warehouse

projects in Minnetonka, Arden Hills and Roseville. The small entrepreneurial shop allowed for involvement in everything from choosing architects to building materials and floor plate sizes and designs. We created marketing programs and budgets. I assisted in construction pricing, cold calls, leasing and legal, finance and accounting, property management, and even managed our small sales team. The learning experience was amazing but like drinking from a fire hose at times. Dave was one of the most talented and influential people I ever worked for, and I have many happy memories. Then I went to United Properties for 5 years, where I did office leasing

friends. I was then recruited by Heitman to the IDS Center. Tell us about the variety of jobs you have done at the IDS Center. I replaced the big hitting Scott Hettinger as the Leasing Director and was responsible for the leasing results of our record setting leasing team (Reed Christianson and me Jim Durda, we did 66 deals my first Beacon Real Estate Services year). At our annual meeting in Chicago in the southwest market along with some tenant representation. we were each awarded a 6 foot I helped manage two major pencil, which we carried into the accounts and made some great airplane like javelins. We got some

An Interview with Jim Durda, Vice President and General Manager of Beacon/IDS Center Continued from previous page.

quizzical looks but people kept their distance…. Subsequently Heitman bought JMB, made me a VP (vulnerable person) and I was required to manage Heitman’s office and industrial leasing efforts in Minneapolis and 6 other cities. After three years of that, I woke up at the crack of dawn to learn that anchor tenants IDS/AMEX and Dayton’s/Target decided to build their own dedicated facilities and vacate over 600,000SF. The then-IDS Center team of Dwyer/Seng/Sternberg/Dover/ Whitbeck/Durda got to work and wrote a comprehensive and bold strategic plan to re-lease the 22 vacating floors, which required a complicated $5M buyout from AMEX. The asset management team didn’t support the risk of our plan, and as a result, was fired by ownership who favored the plan. RREEF was hired and they

whole heartedly endorsed the plan, hired us as fellow RREEFers, and we had tremendous success. I became GM in 2003 and we thought we would be working for RREEF forever. Unfortunately, our success also raised the sales price by over $25M and they sold us to The John Buck Company in 2004. We continued raising rents, occupancy and NOI. So 20 months later, and with the help of some cap rate compression, we were sold to Inland for over $50M more. And this year you sold again, but the sale price is about $25M less than what Inland paid? Why did Inland sell? Though Inland sold for below their 2006 purchase price and has invested serious capital into the project, they have enjoyed a significantly positive cash flow and the effort satisfied the necessary

dividend yield. Exceeding our NOI goal by over $1M in each of the last 3 years didn’t hurt either. However Inland is aggressively rebalancing its portfolio and going back to the industry sectors where they have had incredibly strong success. The Inland portfolio is only about 1% office, while they are increasing their holdings in retail and residential (apartments, hotel, student housing, etc.). Will Beacon retain the strong staff and will they continue to maintain the icon status of the IDS Center? Beacon recognized the dedication and talent on our team. They retained nine of ten team members and added two teams to out-source Linda Solberg’s leasing function. They also know it takes significant capital to maintain/improve trophy properties. They plan on investing in the common area corridors and rest rooms, mechanicals, vertical transportation, glazing, two roofing projects, the garage, amenities, environmental, etc. It has been amazingly rewarding working at a project with such great tenants, staff and public exposure. Every day is different with new challenges and opportunities. Will you go back to being President of BOMA again? No, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I’m happy now to have the opportunity to serve as the chair of our Government Affairs Committee. We have regular interaction with rock stars Bill McGrann and Doug Carnival, as well as past presidents and some

of our industry’s finest leaders. I work closely with executive director Kevin Lewis, who has thrown himself into his position and is doing a splendid job. I also had the pleasure of recruiting two top industry professionals (Brian Burg and Julie Samuelson) into running for the executive committee and becoming President. And, there is a good crop of top talent ready to be tapped (Kolar, Molitor, Wimmer, Coskran, etc.). Any advice for young professionals? Yes, get involved and informed: read, ask, listen, learn, and do. Seek ways to improve and focus on the greater good. Give back to our excellent community, help others, get involved in your place of worship or a favorite charity. It will help balance out the rough spots with a reality check and feed your soul. What are you doing in your time away from BOMA and IDS? My wife and I live in Eden Prairie where we raised 4 children. The kids are all out of school and we have a grandson, who is a little firecracker. We have a cabin in Brainerd which we use year round. I really enjoy all four seasons but especially golf and boating season. I like to read nonfiction but don’t miss an action-packed thriller. Hey, see you at the next BOMA gathering and have fun, making memories! t

The Sale of 33 South Sixth Street and City Center By Tara Steinkraus Cushman & Wakefield | NorthMarq Member of the Communications Committee After having been absent from the Minneapolis market for many years, Shorenstein Realty Services came back on November 20, 2012, with the purchase of 33 South Sixth Street and City Center. The complex was previously owned and managed by Brookfield Properties. Nathan Reed retained his presence at the buildings and was promoted to General Manager at the time of the sale. He had been working for Brookfield since 2004 and had been involved with both buildings, making for a smooth transition. His staff includes an assistant property manager as well as two tenant service administrators. The buildings total approximately 1.6 million square feet with Target being the predominant tenant in the office tower accounting for 73% of the rentable space.

to “open up the entrances and make it more vibrant and inviting to give retail leasing a kickstart.” The renovations are scheduled to begin in 2014 and will include bringing more life to the mall atrium through updated wayfinding and a new façade with more glass/windows.

...one of many recent validations that Minneapolis is a desirable market.

Although the office tower is nearly fully occupied with less than 1% vacancy, Shorenstein has big plans to help lease the retail vacancies in City Center. Capsule Inc. was hired to rebrand City Center and give it a new logo. They want

A softer look with updated artwork and a new directory will be given to the office tower lobby. One of the goals of the renovation is to bring more foot-traffic into the retail spaces. A major item challenging this goal continues to be the bus stop at Nicollet Mall and 7th Street. It’s one of

the busiest in the state because it serves as a transfer point for many routes in the downtown and surrounding Minneapolis neighborhoods. With approximately 3,800 passengers each weekday, the bus stop and immediate area become congested with riders and can be a hotbed for loitering and petty crime. This has a negative impact on leasing efforts for the adjacent retail spaces and management continues to work with Metro Transit to identify positive solutions to resolve the issue. Shorenstein is a privately owned real estate organization active nationally in high-quality office properties. They own and manage approximately 23.6 million square feet of office properties and are headquartered in San Francisco. They focus their investments mostly in downtown CBDs and they like Minneapolis’s live, work, play atmosphere. While approximately half of Shorenstein’s investments are currently in California, the light rail investments that are soon coming to fruition in the Minneapolis metro area are viewed as a benefit to boost future investments in our market. A local investment sales broker views the sale of 33 South Sixth Street and City Center as one of many recent validations that Minneapolis is a desirable market. Momentum has continued throughout 2013 with high profile sales such as RBC Plaza and IDS Tower. With companies like Shorenstein who had previously left the Minneapolis market and are now returning, the outlook of the Minneapolis CBD can be seen as promising. t
