Brandywine CEO Jerry Sweeney sees signs of a big year for owners of high-end commercial real estate
Covid-19 sent shockwaves through the commercial real estate market in 2020. Jerry Sweeney now sees opportunity.
"I think everybody who's in our business should be incredibly enthusiastic about what could happen in 2021," said the CEO of Brandywine Realty Trust, the largest landlord of Class A office space in the Philadelphia region. "The greatest economy in the history of the world was on hold for 10 months. We're beginning to creep our way back. I think there will be a lot of pent-up demand. I think the standards will be even higher. So if you're a very high-quality landlord, I think you're going to benefit from the emerging trend lines."
