Event Summary

Only two issues in Seattle construction threaten to make the Emerald City look like Icarus flying too close to the sun: expensive labor and jittery capital markets. The once strong headwinds of City politics could be mitigated by an energized new administration, and our city's legendary fundamentals may provide the best suspension imaginable to absorb the impact of external shocks, but the threat of high costs and trouble capitalizing will continue to stress the CRE ecosystem from within.

With multifamily rents dropping for the

first time

in a long time, offices still brimming and condos making a

much anticipated surge, the future of Seattle C&D is a dynamic and complex 3D painting. With a bleeding edge economy and the facilities demands that makes, how does Seattle retain its historic identity? Can new construction practices help? How does one make sense of it all and divine a well informed path forwards for one's business? That's what Bisnow is here for. See you bright and early on May 9!

1)  What thought processes are employed by Seattle’s Top Developers when selecting a GC?
2)  What will be the short, medium and long-term effects of peaking construction costs for the region?
3)  How will potentially stringent immigration policies from DC affect labor costs?
4)  What is the source of financing complications for major projects and how can they be navigated?
5) How can modern construction and design methods keep Seattle's historic identity intact as they improve features and facilities?
