ULI Conducts Global Member Infrastructure Survey
ULI members' perceptions of infrastructure quality, their priorities, and what real estate trends will impact infrastructure investment.
ULI YLG successfully held an event in Pittsburgh at Shortys Pins x Pints on April 5th, 2022. Shorty’s is a funtainment/ bar concept complete with short pin bowling, arcade games, outdoor lawn games, and- of course- a selfie- photoshoot space (it is 2022)! The new concept opened one month prior to the event. To no surprise to the ULI YLG committee, the event sold out within a few days- over 50 attendees!
The highlight of the event was the Q/A session with the owner- Herky Pollock. Beyond being the co-owner of Shorty’s Herky is also the Executive Director and North East Director (former National Director) of the Retailer Services Group of CBRE. Suffice to say- he is an industry expert.
The Q/A lasted around 20-25 minutes and touched upon the struggles with opening a restaurant during the pandemic, the idea behind the concept, and the surprising issues that he ran into with a container kitchen.
Herky also answered audience members’ questions regarding the exciting future of the North Side, his go-to karaoke song, and where to invest in the Burgh!
The event was a smash hit!
The ULI YLG of Pittsburgh is aggressively ramping up its programming for the rest of the year. Our next event is a tour of the Helm in the Strip District.
