What You'll Learn

1. There is no doubt that D.C. is growing, though we're seeing many local developers and investors turning to secondary markets in the states. Is it time to leave the nest?

2.  How will traditionally successful markets in Northwest D.C. compete as development spreads out into other submarkets in Northeast, Southeast, and Southwest?

3. As D.C. grows and development reaches emerging markets, what does that look like for the people living there, and how are developers ensuring projects benefit them?

4. How will The Fed's rate hikes impact your REIT investments nationwide and in D.C.?

5. Everyone has their own opinion about the current cycle. Where are we really, and how well have we actually projected it's end?

Why This Matters

One thing is for sure.  There is a LOT going on in our nations' capital and its commercial real estate market. We've recently seen an investment sales frenzy, a dramatic drop in multifamily rental rates, and an increasingly rare win for the office market.

This leads us to ask... What is really going on in our commercial real estate market? In a region dramatically reliant on the federal government, the administration's reluctant decision on a budget is looking promising for the CRE market. But will this boost come into fruition?

As our city spreads out, we are so excited for its potential, but what does the success of other submarkets mean for traditionally successful markets in the CBD and Northwest DC?

This is THE event of the year in DC that you will not want to miss. Join us as the city's most prominent, successful and impactful developers forecast the future of our great city's commercial real estate market.
