Will James joins InterFace Mixed-Use Southeast panel

Capital markets professionals put mixed-use dynamics under the microscope during InterFace panel

Will James recently joined other industry experts at the InterFace Mixed-Use Southeast panel. The event, held on August 22 at the Westin Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia, attracted more than 200 attendees from numerous disciplines related to mixed-use development.

Topics covered included:

  • The interplay between the various uses present within mixed-use projects in the region
  • Equity requirements for mixed-use projects
  • A pending recession
  • The historically low interest rate environment
  • Strong competition among capital lenders

Discussing how lenders have to be careful not to overlook or make assumptions about a property type when financing mixed-use deals, James noted that “You can’t say one component is more attractive than another. Every deal is unique.”
