His track record spans nearly two decades and 1.5 million square feet of acquisitions and ground-up developments in niche asset classes including student housing, urban retail and creative office. For the last 15 years, Marc has been one of the most active operators near Purdue University. During this time, he has acquired, repositioned, entitled, developed and managed 15 assets encompassing over 800 beds and 35,000 square feet of retail, all within three blocks of the Purdue University campus in West Lafayette, IN.
