Binswanger and PIX will open up cross-border channels in industrial real estate between U.S. and Colombia
PHILADELPHIA, PA – September 26, 2022 – Binswanger, a global leader in real estate, today announced it has made a strategic alliance with the Colombian-based real estate firm, PIX, allowing it to provide a range of cross-border real estate services to multinational corporate clients both in Colombia and on a global basis.

PIX offers real estate consulting, transactional, and investment services aimed at corporate clients, property owners, developers, and investors in commercial properties.
The alliance leverages PIX’s deep understanding of the Colombian real estate market and Binswanger’s relationships with industrial clients in high-value geographies such as North and South America.
