Video: GSU’s Jon Wiley, PhD and Lynn Mckee on Opportunity Zones and the Office Market

Jon Wiley, PhD, Professor at J. Mack Robinson School of Business at Georgia State University, and Lynn Mckee, Lecturing Professor at the J. Mack Robinson School or Business at Georgia State University and Senior Vice President and Commercial Real Estate Banker at SunTrust Bank, appear on America’s Commercial Real Estate Show to discuss opportunity zones and how the office market is changing in a post-COVID world. Discussed are effects on opportunity zone values; they note buyers seem best served to concentrate on areas that already have an upward trajectory. They also go on to discuss office properties and what the post-COVID future may be for them, declaring their belief that reality will turn out not to be the best case or worst case scenario, but somewhere in between. These are analytic types that are clearly looking for answers in the data but also are trying to get ahead of the data given that the situation is currently so fluid.
