Property developer to speak on real estate and wealth

K. Duane Brelsford, a prominent real estate developer in eastern Washington, will speak on “Responsible Wealth: Creating Wealth through Real Estate Development” at WSU on Monday, Nov. 14.

The event will take place at 6 p.m. in Carpenter Hall, Room 102, on the Pullman campus. Refreshments will be served.

Brelsford, president of Corporate Pointe Developers in Pullman, grew up in Pullman and graduated from WSU in 1981. After graduation, he moved to Los Angeles, where he worked in commercial development until 1989. Brelsford then moved to Issaquah to work for Embassy Suites, working in the construction of large-scale commercial projects and hotels. He returned to Pullman in 1998, where he has led projects in commercial, single and multifamily residential, and retail development.

Brelsford’s Pullman projects include Corporate Pointe, a 20,000 square-foot office building, the Aspen Village, Pine Ridge and Maple Valley apartments and the Emerald Pointe subdivision. He also headed up Pullman’s Town Centre project, a 27,000 square-foot office and retail complex, and Moscow’s University Pointe, which totals 25,000 square-feet of office and retail space. Brelsford also successfully brought the Village Centre Cinemas, an 1,100-seat eight-plex theater, to Pullman. Some of his other projects include Providence Court, Bridgeway Centre, Emerald Downs, the Lewiston 12-plex movie theatre and the Spokane 14-plex movie theatre.

The lecture, sponsored by the Associated Student of Construction Management and the School of Architecture and Construction Management, is part of an ongoing lecture series on issues in construction.
