Canvas Real Estate Forms Partnership with ARC Alumnus

Canvas Real Estate, a Chicago-based retail real estate advisory founded by Andrew Becker and Michael Wexler, has formed a partnership with Anthony Campagni, a former principal of ARC Real Estate Group.  

As Canvas continues to focus on its existing Chicago business and national expansion, Campagni and his team will bring additional expertise and a top-tier client roster, which includes prolific national and local landlords and developers to the company’s already expansive portfolio. 

“This partnership highlights our commitment to brick-and-mortar retail as elevated in-person shopping and dining experiences become more sought after and desired by consumers,” said Wexler, founder and principal of Canvas. “Retailers have responded to the changing landscape by offering new and unique in-store experiences. As an essential driver of the global economy, the revival of brick-and-mortar is more important than ever before.”
