Regional Principal Gregg Broujos Participates in his Sixteenth MS 150 Bike Ride

Every summer, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society holds their MS 150 Bike Ride which is the largest fundraising bike series in the world. According to the National MS Society website, nearly 75,000 cyclists and more than 6,000 teams ride together each year to raise money towards a cure for MS.

For the sixteenth straight year, Colliers International Pittsburgh Regional Principal, Gregg Broujos, participated in the 150 mile bike ride.

For the first time in the event’s history, the ride was virtual this year and gave riders the freedom to choose a trail of their liking. Broujos chose the Great Allegheny Passage from Cumberland, Maryland to Downtown Pittsburgh.

Colliers International Pittsburgh was able to raise just under $20,000 this year and Broujos has raised over $250,000 throughout his sixteen years of participation.

“The support that my family and the Colliers family has received over the years for this event is incredible,” said Broujos, “we cannot thank everyone enough.”

Colliers International Pittsburgh Assists RJ Community Management with Office Search

Colliers International brokers Edward Lawrence and Paul Horan assisted RJ Community Management in the selection of their newest office location at 4900 Perry Highway. With a move in date of August 2020, the 9,350 RSF suite allowed RJ Community Management to consolidate their Cranberry location and Arnheim & Neely’s Oakland location, a firm they acquired in August of 2019.

RJ Community Management is a firm which specializes in Homeowners and Condominium Association management including single family homes, townhomes, patio homes, condominiums, mixed use, and luxury high-rise buildings.

“We are thrilled with our new office space and location just off the Perrysville Highway exit of  I-279. Paul and Ed of Colliers International did a fantastic job helping us locate several options for our growing business and ultimately negotiate a sensible rental rate on a space that will serve our clients well and help us continue to expand our business,” said Robert Gillenberger, Jr. of RJ Community Management, “We started the process before COVID-19 and worked through the challenges of the virus in a time when most offices are shutting down for remote work. Our new space allows for our employees to work safely, stay socially distant, and provide for a healthy work-life balance.”

This new space at Perry Highway will allow RJ Community Management to better serve their clientele of more than 140 associations and 10,000 households through a more efficient single floor layout, an outdoor area, and prominent exterior signage. The size of the suite also allows room for the anticipated growth of the firm which currently employees 25 people.

“Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, Colliers was very pleased to meet and actually exceed RJ Management’s initial expectations related to the new office,” stated Horan. “This was done through the use of technology and the cooperative efforts of Joe Tosi of Oxford Development Company who represented the building owner, Rick Stern.”

Colliers Pittsburgh Secures the Leasing for Two Pennsylvania Malls

Colliers International | Pittsburgh’s retail team of Mark Anderson and Jonathan Levinson recently secured the listings of two Pennsylvania malls: The Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills and Beaver Valley Mall.

In addition to the two malls, Colliers Pittsburgh Retail team will also assist Mason Asset Management with the leasing of 40,000 SF in the Big Lots Center at 7005 Clairton Road in West Mifflin.

After Anderson and Levinson assisted ScareHouse in the process of finding a new home at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, Jack Bassal of Mason Asset Management, Inc. felt they would be a great fit to lease additional available space within the two malls.

“Mark and Jon had been a pleasure to work with on our deal with ScareHouse at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills. They were very transparent on what their clients’ needs were and their dedicated attitude helped make the deal move very smoothly,” stated Bassal,  “It is a pleasure to have them on board working on the landlord side with us and looking forward to their continued success.”

The Galleria in Pittsburgh Mills in Tarentum, PA (736 – 166,000 SF available) and Beaver Valley Mall (175 – 25,000 SF available) both have anchor, in-line and pad space available for lease. These malls include anchor tenants such as Macy’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, JoAnne Fabrics, Boscov’s and JCPenney’s.

Anderson is excited about the opportunity to fill some of the existing vacant suites within the two shopping centers.  “The Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills is a beautiful facility with excellent access and demographics.  Beaver Valley Mall is the epicenter of Beaver County.  With the construction of the Shell Cracker plant Beaver Valley Mall’s position will only improve.”
