Why You Can't Miss This Los Angeles CRE Event

What You’ll Learn About Adaptive Reuse & Repositioning:

  • What are some of the most noteworthy repositioning projects underway in Los Angeles?
    • What strategies have developers and investors implemented to generate higher returns on these projects?
  • What benefits do adaptive reuse projects offer an investor, equity partner, or developer compared to a traditional ground-up development?
  • Which buildings are most amenable to repositioning at a feasible price point and undertaking the complexities of conversions?
  • On a county level, a recent study suggested that the region could add more than 70,000 housing units via property conversions. Can we fix Los Angeles’ affordable housing crisis through repositioning?
  • What are some of the main challenges of repositioning and adaptive reuse?
    • How do developers overcome these challenges?
  • What is the process for converting an underutilized building into a residential product?
  • What are some design trends that play a key role in conversion projects?


How You’ll Do More Business From Attending This Event: LA prides itself on having the highest number of future residential conversions overall, with more than 4,300 apartments set to be redeveloped as of 2022. The adaptive reuse trend has accelerated as developers and owners look for alternatives to repurpose their underutilized office, retail, and hotel products. The state’s decision to set aside $400M to offer developers incentives to convert office buildings to affordable housing units pushed it to even greater heights. Join us as we discuss and analyze everything you need to know about repositioning and adaptive reuse within the Los Angeles region.


Who You’ll Meet During Networking: Owners, developers, investors, brokers, city and government officials, business consultants, architects, engineers, lawyers, accountants, and bankers.
