ATLANTA, GA, March 27, 2023 —
Constellation Real Estate Partners, an investor and developer of logistics properties, announced today that it has opened an office in Atlanta. Additionally, 30-year industrial real estate veteran Chris Brown has joined Constellation as Partner and 25-year industrial real estate veteran Sandra Reeves as Vice President of Development Management with both being based in the firm’s new Atlanta office. The addition of Brown and Reeves, two professionals with extensive experience in the Southeast, demonstrates Constellation’s well-researched commitment to expanding into strategic growth and port markets.
Brown joins Constellation Real Estate Partners from Duke Realty, where he spent 26 years in various development, acquisition, and operational capacities, most recently as regional president of the Southeast and Central regions. In this new role, he will be responsible for the firm’s growth in key Southeast states to ini4ally include Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Brown has been a member of several industry and community groups, including the Society of Industrial & Office Realtors (SIOR), Atlanta Airport West Community Improvement District, and the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP).
“As I evaluated the next organization to join, the two most important factors were the people and access to capital,” said Chris Brown. “Jeremy Giles and Hien Le have created a tremendous culture at Constellation Real Estate Partners. Their partnership base has proven their ability to structure deals creatively. I look forward to partnering with the Constellation team and my colleague, Sandra Reeves, to spur our investment in key markets in the Southeast.”
Reeves also joins Constellation Real Estate Partners from Duke Realty, where she spent the past 20 years developing more than 15 million square feet and more than 1,300 acres, most recently serving as director of development services. As Vice President of Development Management, she will be responsible for overseeing and growing the firm’s development pipeline. She is a long-standing member of CREW Atlanta.
“Demand for modern, well-located logistics real estate in the Southeast has never been higher due to factors that include service of consumption for a rapidly growing population, supply chain reconfiguration, and continued expansion of the manufacturing base,” said Jeremy Giles, Managing Partner at Constellation Real Estate Partners. “Chris and Sandra bring the experience, relationships, and reputations that are absolutely critical to our expansion in the Southeast.”
