We recently added Will Boye at the Duck Pond to expand our public relations capabilities, and as you can see below, he’s been busy! We’ve worked with several clients this month to share their stories with the media about new developments, executive hires and in-depth profiles:
- National developer Miller-Valentine Group is under construction on new apartment communities in Kentucky and Ohio. WaterStone at Hamburg, with 264 units, is expected to deliver its first units in Lexington early next year, and WaterStone at Carriage Trails, located in the Dayton area, will deliver its first units late this year.

- Childress Klein and Crosland Southeast are under construction on The Hub, the first of two planned office buildings at the 90-acre Waverly development in south Charlotte. The Hub, a six-story, 154,000-square-foot building, is scheduled to be complete in May 2017 and will feature exposed ceilings, upscale lobbies and a four-level, 840-space parking garage. The team also acquired an 8.5-acre site on Providence Road next to Waverly for the development of a hotel and up to 30,000 square feet of retail space.
- Real estate investment company Eastern Federal Corp. announced that Ned Long has been appointed president and CEO of the company, the first non-family president for the firm in 80 years. Long served as chief financial officer at Crosland from 2000 to 2010 and was most recently chief financial officer for CampusWorks.

- Monte Ritchey, president of real estate development firm Conformity Corp., was profiled by DevelopCLT and discussed how he got involved with Brooklyn Village, the mixed-use development planned for uptown Charlotte. Conformity is one of the companies in BK Partners, which was selected to redevelop the property in Second Ward, and Ritchey also spoke this month about the group’s plans for affordable housing at Brooklyn Village.
- And TreesCharlotte hosted its fifth annual Urban Forestry Summit, a conference designed to engage participants in a conversation about ways to preserve and maintain Charlotte’s tree canopy. This was the first time that the public was invited to portions of the event, including a keynote address by David Nowak and Larry Selzer about the benefits of the urban forest and innovations in community engagement.
