D Magazine reports on Professor Buckley's community panel

April 21, 2011

In an April 18, 2011 article titled "Panel: Grocers eyeing McKinney Ave., DART board mulling big rate hike for non-residents", D Magazine writer Christine Perez reported on a panel of local real estate experts, hosted by UT Arlington Professor Michael Buckley, assembled to discuss the future of Dallas.

About Buckley, Perez wrote:

"Urban density evangelist Michael Buckley recently hosted a star-studded panel of real estate experts to talk about the future of Dallas. It was a fascinating discussion. But what else would you expect from Buckley, who left his post as director of Columbia University’s graduate real estate development program to join the University of Texas at Arlington and help tackle the nation’s mortgage crisis."

The panel was held at the offices of Haynes and Boone in Victory Park.  Panelists included David Zatopek, president of Dallas AIA; Mickey Ashmore, president of UCR; Linda McMahon, president of The Real Estate Council; Paul Rowsey, managing partner at E2M Private Equity; Lucy Billingsley, principal of Billingsley Co.; Rick Martin, partner and real estate attorney at Haynes and Boone LLP; John Cullins, partner at Ernst & Young LLP; David Leininger, CFO of Dallas Area Rapid Transit; Karen Walz, executive director of Vision North Texas; and Don Powell, principal of BOKA Powell.

Professor Buckley has been profiled by D Magazine in the past, in an article titled "The Pied Piper of Urban Density".
