    Why This Matters

    Boston developers are constantly looking for new opportunities to create dynamic spaces for future tenants to live, work and play. However, Bostons' infrastructure is falling apart and available land up for development is shrinking. 

    Land prices in Boston are still rising as foreign and domestic capital flows in. Meanwhile, a labor shortage is driving up the cost of development. Making deals pencil out has never been more difficult, but finding practical solutions has also never been more important. 

    Bisnow is bringing together the industry's top construction and development experts to explore how properties will be built and updated in order to modernize the city's aging building stock to meet the sustainability goals of today's tenants and tomorrow's citizens.
