From 1995 to 2006, we collaborated to develop over $500 million (8 projects) with Cousins Properties. In December of 2006, Robert Manarino partnered with four of the nation's most successful and proven industry leaders, Richard Ziman, (UCLA Ziman Anderson School of Real Estate), and Victor Coleman (Hudson Capital), both formerly of Arden Realty, and John Long and Jack Mahoney, CEO of Highridge Partners also cofounder of Golden Boy Partners and Summit Commercial respectively, to form Manarino Realty. This combination created a highly-seasoned alliance of diverse and visionary individuals unparalleled in the real estate industry.

From 2006 to 2009, we had several new projects in planning including a major mixed-use project in Boyle Heights. Due to the 2008 economic downturn we were forced to abandon these projects. Fortunately our disciplined approach resulted in only minimal pre-development losses.

In 2010, we were selected to obtain and pursue the highest and best use for a former Boeing site in Downey, Calif. (Tierra Luna Marketplace). We achieved entitlements in April 2012. Demolition has commenced and construction is slated for 2014.

Additionally we are currently collaborating with Prudential and Cousins to reposition Los Altos Market Center in Long Beach. We recently opened the nation's first healthcare community clinic in a former Borders space. Moreover, we plan to play an integral role in the healthcare mandate which will be in full swing in 2014.
