Event Summary

While Chicago’s latest and greatest projects are stealing the limelight and attracting the attention of mega-tenants like Amazon, local government and visionaries in CRE are also driving huge change. Plans for the revitalization of the Chicago River

designed to spur economic development and transform the river

into a recreational amenity will undoubtedly have a huge impact. With so much effort being focused

on the City what should CRE professionals expect when it comes to the development outlook for the key areas impacted, particularly in hospitality, retail and tenant growth? Furthermore, which projects are the future of Chicago’s image as a desirable place to live, work, and visit. Join Bisnow and the team for our annual State of the Market event as we go on a deep dive to establish the key questions with our incredible lineup of leaders in the Hospitality, Office, and Capital Markets space! As always feel free to share your questions for our all-star panelists, comments and post your photos using #Bisnow on Twitter and Instagram, and follow us at @Bisnow on Twitter for more local news.

1) According to Google, half of all organizations (51%) offering employees flexible hours and the growth of competition in the co-working market how are Chicago's developers incorporating a space-as-a-service approach to their latest developments such as TJBC's 151 N. Franklin & McCaffery's Twelve01West?

2) How will the riverfront redevelopment transform the North Branch and Bucktown and what does the addition of a prime entertainment facility mean for Chicago's hospitality and retail market more broadly?

3) As Chicago positions itself to stay way ahead of the curve, how is the macroeconomic environment shaping the commercial real estate development outlook? In the long term, what do mammoth consolidatory deals like Colliers International buying a 75% stake in Chicago-based Harrison Street Real Estate Capital mean concerning trickle-down effects?

5) From sky-decks at the Aon center to an increased focus on space-as a-service and a hospitality-based approach to retail, office and multifamily projects,  which amenity add-ons should developers be focusing their efforts and what blend of asset classes are seeing the highest increase in footfall in mixed-use projects?
