Commercial RE and Development leaders celebrated the 2020 holiday season and toasted the exciting growth of the Volusia County region during a recent business development mixer held by the Central Florida Commercial Association of Realtors.
Held just a stone’s throw from the World famous Daytona Speedway, CRE leaders gathered at the Rock Bottom Brewery’s mezzanine level where health safety measures were respected.
After checking each attendees’ temperature, CFCAR 2020 President Paul Partyka, CCIM, welcomed the guests. Partyka shared his commitment to supporting all members of the 10-county overall board, recognizing the year’s challenges due to COVID-19. Partyka also thanked event sponsors and gave away a series of door prizes.
CFCAR President-Elect Bob Rand, CCIM, whose company, Coldwell Banker Commercial Benchmark, is based in the Daytona Beach area, also thanked guests for attending and introduced Volusia County’s Economic Development Leader Chris Wimsatt.
Wimsatt, VP of Business Development for Team Volusia, Greater Daytona Economic Development Corporation, shared details of expansive growth coming to the Volusia County and Daytona region. Wimsatt touched on the nearly completed Downtown Daytona's $4 million Beach Street revamp that is now down to finishing touches, as well as Daytona Beach's Riverfront Park that is immersed in dramatic $23 million overhaul. Rand and Wimsatt both were upbeat about a number of soon to be announced projects.
