The commercial real estate investment market in the National Capital is poised for a “banner year” in 2017, according to the CBRE Ottawa Market Outlook. But many building owners – or purchasers with plans to redevelop — in the city have some work ahead if they want to capitalize on Ottawa’s large, and rapidly growing, tech sector. It’s the largest downtown tenant outside of federal government agencies, and poised to continue to expand if businesses can find suitable space.
When he was invited to sit on the “How do we Growth Hack Ottawa?” panel, William MacGowan did some serious thinking about what the city can do to become an international tech leader. MacGowan is an Ottawa resident. As Director of Smart Building Digitization at tech and innovation firm Cisco, his mind naturally drifted to what he knows best. Then it struck him.
Minto Capital Management has taken a major step in shifting its focus with the sale of 50 per cent of its ownership of Minto Place in Ottawa to Investors Real Property Fund. The transaction, announced Monday morning by the two companies, includes three Minto Place office towers comprising 945,030 square feet of leasable retail and office space and 1,055 parking stalls along Kent Street, Lyon Street and Laurier Avenue in the city’s downtown. “I’m extremely proud of this accomplishment.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
