"The Pollina Corporate Team came through for us again. The Team’s wide range of expertise in location analysis, site selection, and build-to-suits was very important to the success of the project. Your knowledge of construction and negotiation skills were essential in structuring our land lease, building lease and agreement with our contractor. Your negotiating skills not only saved us money but also provided a rapidly growing company like McLeodUSA with the flexibility we require in our transactions. Again, thank you for another job well done."

Pollina Corporate Real Estate, Inc. has represented McLeodUSA in over 30 transactions in 8 states. When McLeodUSA acquired a St. Louis-area telecommunications provider, Pollina Corporate was asked to perform a location analysis, consulting and brokerage services.
