Joseph P. Tagliola


Tagliola will tell you that he first recognized the concept of mixed-use in action as a teenager when visiting amusement parks with his family. Entertainment, dining, retail and hotel options were closely connected. Some 33 years later, Tagliola has transformed his passion for “magical gathering spots” into a career of studying, developing, leasing and master planning the future of how and where we spend our time and money.

Tagliola has worked with some of the great retail and mixed-use developers in the nation. He founded Collarmele Partners in 2008, served as Executive Director of QIC US, President of QIC US Properties, and President of Turnberry Associates Retail and Office. During his tenure, he oversaw the 1 million square foot, mixed-use Town Square project in Las Vegas, the expansion of Aventura Mall, and the pre-planning of the retail component for Fontainebleau Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

From 1998 to 2006, Tagliola was the Senior Executive Vice President for Westfield – responsible for all development pre-planning and leasing activity for the company’s
portfolio of 68 centers in the U.S. During that time, over $3 billion was invested to update multiple properties to reflect the needs, wants, conveniences, and lifestyle demands of the 21st century.
