CRE Investment Landscape: Multi-Product Multi-Geography Investors Perspectives

There’s no question that today’s commercial real estate market is undergoing a change from a frothy upward trending market to one where risks are higher and good deals harder to come by. With asset prices at all-time highs and rents moving sideways or down, locally and nationally, where to invest and what to do next are difficult questions to answer. Hear from top investors who put money to work locally and nationally across all property types as they discuss where they see opportunity today.

Rethinking Retail: Falling Knife vs. Golden Opportunity

Retail is in a state of upheaval nationally, and New York City retail is not immune to the forces that are disrupting consumer behavior and causing an evolution in the winners and losers of street retail today and in the future. How do retailers big and small view NYC’s attractiveness, and what are the key factors that would cause them to expand further or possible reduce the number of stores? Which submarkets are they looking at? And how are retailers and retail space operators innovating to stay relevant today?

12:05 PM

Battlefield Work: The Future of Office, and the Office of the Future

Recently, the NYC office market saw its first dip since the Great Recession, sparking fears that the tide that has lifted all boats may begin to ebb. How are demand and supply for office space affecting investment and development opportunities in office? In what ways are flexible office arrangements propping up or undermining the office leasing market? If a recession hits the economy, will highly amenitized office space still be a major selling point to attract and retain talent? Who wins and who loses, if the office leasing market softens significantly?
