St. John Properties Plants Flag in NC, Installs Dustin Atkielski in Leadership Role
St. John Properties, Inc., has entered the NC market with the opening of a new regional office in Raleigh.
Dustin Atkielski, who has worked for the company since 2013, will lead day-to-day operations of the new Raleigh office as regional partner, with responsibilities including site and property acquisition, development, construction, marketing and leasing and asset/property management activities. Atkielski most recently worked in the company’s WI regional office, where he oversaw all entitlement, development and building construction activities.
St. John Properties, which has a real estate portfolio valued at over $4.5 billion, is pursuing opportunities to fulfill its speculative development strategy throughout the Research Triangle area of NC.
“We believe this region is poised for long-term growth and is fueled by significant economic development drivers led by the expansion of the research and life sciences industries,” said Lawrence Maykrantz, president and CEO of St. John Properties “We plan to immediately analyze all land acquisition opportunities to host our signature flex/R&D, single-story, mid-rise office and retail building types.”
