URES group in downtown Austin

URES group in downtown Austin

On March 28 a group of McCombs undergraduate real estate students visited the Whitley, one of downtown Austin’s new luxury high-rise apartment buildings, and the new IBC Bank Tower, which will anchor the northwest corner of Austin’s Republic Park with Class-A office space and restaurants.

Students met first with Barrett Lepore and Miguel Segura, of Riverside Resources, to discuss the multi-family industry in Austin and specifically to discuss their development of the Whitley. They were also treated to a tour of the property.

They next toured the IBC property, where they met with Bob Barnes, president of IBC, Jamil Alam, managing principal of Endeavor Real Estate Group and Steve Welton, representing JE Dunn. The students were very fortunate to have each of the parties developing the property explain their role in the project.

Many thanks go to all of the industry folks who took their valuable time to work with these lucky McCombs students!
