Why You Won't Want To Miss This CRE Deal-Making Conference:

What You’ll Learn From Alexandria CRE Leaders At This Event:

  • In 2022, Alexandria delivered the second-most office-to-residential conversions in the country, with 435 converted units. How are developers and economic leaders assessing the ongoing opportunities and prospects for these redevelopment projects throughout the area?
  • With Alexandria lawmakers voting to eliminate single-family-only zoning, allowing for the construction of buildings with up to four units in residential neighborhoods, how will this policy change contribute to housing diversity and address the city's housing needs?
  • Critics argue that the policy change of single-family-only zoning may primarily benefit developers rather than producing affordable housing. How does Alexandria plan to incentivize affordable housing development and ensure that the new policy effectively serves the needs of all residents, including those with lower incomes?
  • How are infrastructure upgrades and transportation planning being integrated into major development projects in Alexandria to support increased housing density, enhance connectivity and alleviate traffic congestion?
  • What investment opportunities are emerging in Alexandria's evolving economic landscape and how can stakeholders capitalize on these opportunities for sustainable growth?
