Event Summary

Atlanta's development boom shows no signs of stopping in 2019. According to a report from Cushman & Wakefield, Atlanta gained 52,050 jobs year-over-year, up to 1.9% compared to the 1.1% YOY nationwide. Employment is also down to 3.7%, well below the national average. Millennials and baby boomers alike are flocking into the city, and major projects - from Pittsburgh Yards to the Gulch and more - rise to meet the growing population. But is Atlanta's development boom also making strides to meet the demands for affordable housing, additional healthcare vicinities, and more? And how are developers facing

rising construction prices as their projects come to fruition? Start the New Year right and join Bisnow as we gather CRE's top owners and developers to discuss Atlanta's major projects, rising challenges, and more. It's an event you don't want to miss!
