Senior Vice President, Gordon Biersch Restaurant Group
Mike helped us with our development, location, and lease for the Power & Light District. He also was working with us for locations with Cordish in Toronto, Philadelphia, Baltimore, St. Louis and Louisville. I found him to be very detail oriented, efficient and a man of his word.
Associate Director, Cushman & Wakefield
Michael is a focused professional. He takes pride in his work and is passionate in our field of Commercial Real Estate. I have tremendous respect for him.
Former Partner, Stinson Morrison Hecker
I had the opportunity to work with Mike on several transactions in connection with the development of a major real estate project here in Kansas City. I found Mike to be thoughtful, creative, focused and very engaged, and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
Managing Partner, Street-Works Development
Mike is a strategic thinker with the street smarts and feel to make all the right tactical moves. A closer who understands street retail long term trends better than anyone I have worked with in my 40+ year career in the urban space. Wise, way beyond his years. A first string selection for my all-time retail leasing and development team.
Development Director, The Time Group
We have been very pleased with the leasing work of Cana Development. Over the past 3 years we have worked with them on a number of historic, urban projects. They have a clear understanding of the merchandising, great contacts in the retail and restaurant community and a strong willingness to spend the time and effort to identify and groom interesting prospects. Nowhere was this skill set more apparent than with the successful leasing and launch of Mount Vernon Marketplace, a specialty food hall with 15 independent vendors.
