The Real Deal raised its glass to some of L.A.’s most prominent commercial real estate executives on Tuesday as it celebrated the one-year anniversary of the magazine’s launch into the Los Angeles market.
Luminaries such as John Cushman III and Nelson Rising gathered for the event at Chaya in Downtown Los Angeles where guests shared a variety of large dishes from paella to prime angus ribeye.
Since the dinner also fell on election night, many were checking their phones and updating the crowd on the status of Measure S. The controversial ballot measure was thought to be a close race but was heading toward its landslide defeat by the end of the party.
Attendees came from all sides of the commercial real estate business, from brokers to investors to developers.
Publisher Amir Korangy emphasized the magazine’s dedication to unbiased coverage of the real estate industry and providing readers with up-to-the-minute news and industry trends.
Hannah Miet, managing editor of TRD LA; reporters Katherine Clarke, Cathleen Chen, and Subrina Hudson; West Coast advertising director Frankie Morales and West Coast account manager Suzanne Schweizer were also in attendance.
