Event Summary

From the west side of Santa Monica and across the I-10 to downtown, the skyline of Los Angeles is punctuated with construction cranes. Office towers, hotels, apartment buildings, and retail centers are being built across the city.

Just barely a year ago, LA

was ranked as the second most visible construction city in all the US with 36 cranes in the sky.

It's no surprise that construction is a hot topic in CRE today.

Nationwide construction spending in 2017 rose to a record $1.257 Trillion, with construction firms projecting

more increases in new private construction spending and payroll increases for 2018.

As construction spending has increased, valuations have crept to unchartered territory. Many construction lenders are approaching the underwriting of debt more conservatively than ever before.

Join Bisnow as we address the most pressing issues in the CRE construction environment. Topics will include how

to mitigate project risks, where construction lenders are filling voids, and how to deliver your projects on time without going over budget.

1. How can developers effectively navigate stringent regulatory policies to go from entitlement to ribbon cutting?

2. What are construction lenders looking for from developers who are financing their projects?

3. How will future CRE developments in Los Angeles keep pace with rising construction costs?

4. How can developers mitigate construction risks: going over budget, project defaults, unfinished sites, material and labor shortages?

5. What are the latest and greatest design trends?
