2:00 PM - 3:00 PM | A Look Into Development & Construction Challenges & Opportunities

2021 has seen some serious ebbs and flows for developers. From skyrocketing costs of supplies to the shifting buyers market, developers have had their fair share of challenges. However, with every challenge comes an opportunity to innovate, and as it becomes more apparent that the hybrid workforce is here to stay, developers have been presented with a unique opportunity to create multifunctional spaces for both work and home life. During this engaging hour we will discuss some of the shifts of the last year and how the Industry has responded. We will explore emerging trends in the development of multifamily projects, and examine what changes are here to stay for developers moving forward.
