Why This Matters

In 2017 there was plenty of buzz around Oakland, however, a lot of the attention came for scenarios that were playing outside of the East Bay. The tide has now turned and with the vacuum created by the Warriors and Uber headed for Mission Bay in San Francisco, many are optimistic about the cities future.  

Thompson Dorfman principal Bruce Dorfman remembers when most of his firm's projects were based in Emeryville because Berkeley had few opportunities for development and it was difficult to finance building in Oakland. “Now you're seeing major institutional players coming into Oakland,” Dorfman said. “When institutional partners don't like an area, they're not going to invest, but they're kind of like lemmings when they do come into an area.”

The City is primed for growth and money is flowing in from around the Bay Area. Join use as we discuss lending, developing and construction trends! Questions about the event content? Please email jeff.arthur@bisnow.com
