Cigar Factory 2

CBI and Knoll organized and sponsored the ULI Emerging Leaders Event on Thursday June 22nd at the Cigar Factory.  Our team brought in William Cogswell, President of WECCO and developer of the project, and Richard Morse of Palmetto Commercial Properties who leased the building to help lead the tour and discuss what went into the development, the history behind it, and the successes of this mixed-use development.

CBI engaged its client, PURE Insurance, to allow us to tour their space on the 3rd floor of the building with views of the Ravenel Bridge and Downtown Charleston.  The Charleston Office Leader for PURE took us through the space and discussed the open, collaborative layout of their space and how it drives their company culture, attraction, and retention of associates.  We had two groups of roughly 15 ULI Members go through the space.  Once the tour was over everyone convened at Bar Mash on the 1st floor for drinks, fun, and fellowship!
