ALM's GlobeSt.com Announces Rollout of Daily Boston Edition

New market selected based on buoyant real estate market in Massachusetts as part of brand's national expansion strategy

NEW YORK, May 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALM's Real Estate Media Group, publisher of GlobeSt.com, has announced the rollout of its Boston edition, amid the greatest increase in occupancy for Greater Boston commercial real estate since 2000, GlobeSt.com's daily dedicated Boston market edition will be available starting May 4th. It is the latest in a string of dedicated new market offerings, which so far have included San Diego, Austin and, most recently Atlanta, as part of the brand's large-scale expansion plans.

"Our research revealed that the Boston commercial real estate industry is buoyant, which made it a natural choice for inclusion among GlobeSt.com's new dedicated market editions," said Michael Desiato, vice president & group publisher of the Real Estate Media Group. "2014 turned out to be Boston's strongest year since 2006 and experts are optimistic that 2015 will be even stronger, so offering a Boston edition allows us to better serve our customers by providing content where it's needed most."

The Boston edition will feature a weekly email digest containing insights and analysis on topics such as Boston's economic drivers and market challenges. Its editorial team will be led by veteran journalist John Jordan, a longtime writer for Real Estate Media with more than 30 years of experience in newspapers and publishing. Jordan is currently a contributing writer for Real Estate Forum and GlobeSt.com. The sales team will be led by Richard Petri (mailto:rpetri@alm.com) In addition to the launch, ALM's Real Estate Media Group will host networking event RealShare BOSTON on July 22 at the Omni Parker House.
