Episode 129: A New Remote Work Hub In Bentonville With Common And Blue Crane

About the Show:                          

It took a minute to release this episode, but we believe it is better late than never. We recently sat down with Matthew Micksin, Senior Director of Real Estate with Common, to discuss his company’s entrance into the Real Estate market in Northwest Arkansas. Common is one of the nations leading residential brands and operating platforms for Multi-Family developments.  

Blue Crane, a development and real estate company part of The Runway Group and based in Bentonville, answered an RFP from Common to build a new style of real estate development for today’s workers in Bentonville. 

Whether you are remotely working from home with a local company or a firm on the West or East Coast, there will be living units ideally suited for this new lifestyle – counits, microunits, or traditional apartments, to name a few. 

Hear all about how Blue Crane was one of five finalists, out of 29, for Common’s Remote Work Hub. The other finalists include New Orleans, Ogden, Utah, Rocky Mount, NC, and Rochester, NY. Common will pursue projects with all of these locations.  

It seems that Common and Blue Crane are figuring out ways to capitalize on some of the work/life changes that have taken place partly because of the pandemic and partly because each new generation demands a fresh take on the way that we live and work.
