Los Angeles-based Skanska has launched a new commercial development platform and has named Clare De Briere as EVP to lead the new group. As part of the launch, Skanska has also acquired its first development site at 9000 Wilshire in Beverly Hills. It plans to build a three-story, 40,000-square-foot office building at the site.

“We’re seeing a huge investment in mass transit, very minimal new office stock available across the market and a strong and diverse economy,” De Briere tells GlobeSt.com about the firm’s decision to launch the new department. “This created a perfect opportunity for Skanska to establish a commercial development practice in the LA market and acquire our first project in Beverly Hills.”
