Torti Gallas + Partners is pleased to announce that Brandon Diamond has joined our Silver Spring, Maryland office as Executive Director of Retail + Placemaking. Mr. Diamond has over 28 years of experience designing high-profile and diverse retail and mixed-use commercial projects across the US and abroad.
He has also become an industry leader in commercial real estate repositioning, an urgent challenge in both urban and suburban locations as people and markets migrate. He helps clients work across retail, entertainment, workplace, residential, and hospitality sectors to define a vibrant highest and best-use approach to real estate assets, which also bring value to their communities. When rethinking underperforming assets, Mr. Diamond draws from a broad set of lenses: architecture, planning, retail strategy and synergistic placemaking - always with a keen eye on the "end-user" to inform highly-effective solutions. At their core, Brandon loves to produce memorable environments with rich social energy, timeless and trend-setting, always with a game plan for sustained operational success.
Prior to joining Torti Gallas, Mr. Diamond held positions with Streetsense, Bethesda as Managing Director of Architecture & Planning, and DDG, Baltimore as a Partner and Board Director, among others. He received his Master of Architecture second professional degree from the University of Illinois, Chicago and two architecture degrees from The Catholic University of America.
