Event Summary


existing office activity includes about 200 active tenants with a combined 6.5M SF of demand. Boston continues to see sustained growth in major tech industries but

how will the city see this development and in what neighborhoods? There is a

shortage of available office space at the moment. If Amazon did anything for the Boston community, it revealed a vacuum of opportunity to continue to attract outside companies to relocate to the Hub. What does Boston have to do to

continue fostering growth from within its own backyard.

Co-working hasn't taken off in the Bay State compared

to other markets like New York, San Francisco, and London. As co-working companies seem to be moving past

niche businesses, will this finally be the push that Boston needs to embrace this new office dynamic? Or will more traditional models continue to drive construction of new offices? Mass continues to be a

top destination for life science jobs. How can developers capitalize on this growing demand for tenant-catered needs in the life science, technology, and other industries?

1) How can life sciences take the lead on office development in 2019?

2) Where can larger tenants find space in Boston? 

3) What are the hot new office construction projects on the horizon?

4) Has the co-working revolution made its way to Boston compared to other markets?

5) Will the federal Opportunity Zones program provide relief for Boston's office space shortage?
