Franklin Street Promotes Greg Matus

Franklin Street announced that it has promoted Greg Matus to senior vice president of investment sales.

In this new role, he will focus specifically on growing the company’s investment sales division on a national basis.  For the time being, Matus will remain in his role as regional managing partner- South Florida until a replacement is found.

Matus joined Franklin Street two and a half years ago tasked with growing the South Florida office.  In that short amount of time, he has tripled the number of employees in the Miami and Broward offices combined, and overseen the closing of millions of dollars in real estate transactions.

This new promotion comes at a time when Franklin Street is expanding considerably across the entire state of Florida. In May, the company opened an Orlando office to better serve clients and connect its coverage from one Florida coast to another. Matus will work closely with all of the Franklin Street offices in Florida and Georgia to add and train new investment sales associates and increase production across all product types.
 
“The plan is to double our investment sales team by the end of 2017,” Matus said. “We have all the right ingredients in place to make that happen—strong leadership, a collaborative culture, talented professionals and a clear vision.  My new role allows us to strengthen our position in Florida, and within the next five years, become a national player.”
 
“Greg did a great job for us building a quality team in South Florida, so we’re very excited to see what he can do in this new role,” said Kurt Keaton, president of management and real estate services. “Throughout most of his commercial real estate career, he has been involved on the investment sales and new business development side of the business. Now he gets a chance to take that skill set to a larger stage.”

Throughout his career, Matus has been involved in thousands of transactions valued at more than $3 billion with expertise spanning across retail, multifamily, hospitality, office and industrial sectors. Within one year of joining Franklin Street, he led the South Florida retail investment sales team into a top three position in the company.

Prior to joining Franklin Street, Matus ran Marcus & Millichap’s Fort Lauderdale office as the vice president/regional manager of the company’s real estate investment services division. Additionally, he held that same position in the Orlando office, was a first vice president of investments, senior associate and director of the national retail group and multifamily housing group.

With Channelside Bay Plaza in flux, Vinik-Cascade team launches program to buoy tenants

The Vinik-Cascade real estate team is looking to buoy tenants in Channelside Bay Plaza with a new promotion meant to reel in residents of the surrounding neighborhood.

Strategic Property Partners and Franklin Street — which SPP tapped to lease and manage the property — have launched the “Channelside Bay Plaza VIP card,” which is good for special promotions and offers at the plaza. Currently, for example, there’s a buy one get one free offer at Cold Stone Creamery and 25 percent off bowling, food and beverages at Splitsville.

Ali Glisson, a spokeswoman for SPP, said 12,000 households received the mailing.

“Thanks to our partners at Port Tampa Bay, we were able to open the wharf to the public earlier this summer, and now, in partnership with the plaza tenants, we’re launching this program as another way to connect with our neighbors in the Channel District,” Glisson wrote in an email Monday. “Ultimately, the plan is to grow and extend it to include other offers, such as special pricing for entrance to events hosted at Channelside Bay Plaza.”

The VIP program comes as the fate of the beleaguered retail property is still in flux. The plaza is part of the $2 billion mixed-use district that SPP is planning in downtown Tampa. SPP, controlled by Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik and Cascade Investment LLC, acquired the ground lease to the plaza in 2014. Port Tampa Bay owns the land underneath the plaza.

SPP CEO James Nozar said Monday that he would be giving an update on the property to the port board on Sept. 20. He declined to specify whether that presentation would be a general update on the plaza or include redevelopment plans for the property.

Since taking over the ground lease, SPP has spent ” seven figures” on cosmetic upgrades to the plaza. In April, SPP moved its offices from Amalie Arena to 8,000 square feet on the second floor of the plaza as it prepared to ramp up hiring.

SPP has also hired an events manager to oversee programming at the plaza.

“We think by being there, clearly, we’ll be a lot more visible and approachable to the tenants as well,” Nozar told the port authority in April.
