Planes, Trains & Amazon HQ2: Infrastructure Challenges in a Growing City

With the arrival of Amazon in Long Island City, the spotlight has only brightened upon the region’s infrastructure and transportation challenges. The area’s subways, roads, bridges, tunnels, railroads, airports and waterways are all in need of vast amounts of dollars to keep up with the pace of growth and development. Which are the most important priorities? What is the status of proposed projects? How will we get there from here? This panel, comprised of top infrastructure leaders, convenes to discuss the chronic challenges at hand and present a vision for the way forward, and how private developers and construction firms might be part of the solution.

The Do-Over: Maximizing ROI When Reconstructing Existing Buildings for the Next 40 Years

While top developers strive to build the next tallest tower, other industry leaders are quietly repositioning and redeveloping millions of square feet of existing properties into higher and better uses. What strategies and represent the best risk-adjusted ROI in today’s market? This panel, comprised of redevelopment leaders across the product spectrum, dives into the details of reworking office, residential and industrial properties into what tenants want and how to maximize the long term value of newly redeveloped properties.

DevTech 2019: Innovations in Building Design & Construction Technology

Necessity is the mother of invention, but innovation doesn’t happen by itself. Trying new things in new development and construction, with so much at risk, requires a disciplined practice of experimentation and tempered risk-taking. And yet a failure to innovate may end up in an inferior product in a competitive market place. How do top developers get out of their comfort zones without betting it all? This panel, comprised of active developers of office, retail and residential properties, explores the nuanced decision making behind such bold choices as Passive House, the Well standard, mass timber construction and radically unique design as a hedge against recession.

Moderator:

  • Tara Mulrooney, Special Construction Counsel, Proskauer

 

Panelists include:

Opportunity Zones Workshop: What Developers and Construction Firms Need to Know

What You Need to Know about Opportunity Zones.

The Economic Opportunity Zones program was created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) in December of 2017 to provide substantial incentives to the private sector to invest long term in qualified low-income communities throughout the United States in order to spur economic development and job creation. The program seeks to utilize a portion of the trillions of dollars of unrealized capital gains (in the stock market and mutual funds alone) for development in these designated areas. In this workshop, we discuss the latest guidance on the provision.

  • Opportunity Zone rules, limits and exceptions: what are the core statutory, legal and financial requirements?
  • Strategies to use OZs incentives to maximize returns?
  • Practical uses of OZs to fit your business plan and expertise?
  • What investment vehicles and structures work / don’t work with OZs?

How are top development leaders dealing with key pain points arising from today’s situation: high construction costs, tightness in the labor market, open shop difficulties, risk management headaches, materials pricing and design challenges? This panel, comprised of leaders representing tens of millions of square feet under development, discusses the current activity and future pipeline of office, residential, and industrial development and what it means to the industry.
