Introducing our October/November Cover Story: Lisa Picard

The president and CEO of EQ Office wants to change the way you work.

The next issue of GRAY, on newsstands October 1, 2019, will feature Lisa Picard, president and CEO of commercial real estate investment firm EQ Office. Whether it’s breathing new life into classics such as Seattle’s Exchange Building and Chicago’s iconic midcentury modern Willis Tower (originally the Sears Tower) or conceiving from-the-ground-up offices such as 400 Fairview in Seattle’s burgeoning South Lake Union neighborhood (a.k.a. Amazonia), Picard doesn’t simply string together successful projects that return on investment. Emphasizing tenant and visitor experience, she’s drawing upon her MIT master’s degrees in urban planning and finance to seek public good through investment of private capital. Written by Brian Libby and photographed by Levi Mandel, the story explores Picard’s work in the male-dominated, profit-obsessed commercial real estate market. She’s not breaking glass ceilings—Picard is figuratively and literally taking down walls.
