Why This Matters

What You'll Learn: 

- High-end residential is on its way to University City. Will there be demand to meet these luxury units? 

- Capital from outside of Philly is pouring into University City. Now that investors have taken notice will we see the neighborhood explode? 

- With all of the Life Science lab space on the way as well as the office space, will we see University City become the new 'hot spot' to work?

  

How You'll Do More Business: University City is seeing more development than any other neighborhood in Philadelphia. Make sure to learn about new projects that will change the neighborhood forever. 

  

Who You'll Meet: Investors, owners, developers, brokers, city officials, engineers

   

What Your Ticket Gets You: Digital summit tickets include two panels of content and access to three virtual networking opportunities including direct messaging with other attendees, the ability to request and host video meetings and three-minute video-enabled speed networking to make deals happen. Unable to attend live? Don’t worry, you will be able to access recordings of all panels for 30 days after the summit!
