Why This Matters

Often at Bisnow events, we dive deep into the deals being made every day, the developments springing up and the ever-changing cycles of our market. Rarely do we take a moment to discuss what attracts residents and tenants to the building at first glance: the design. 

D.C. exudes history, and that gives architects challenges to refine and redevelop, all while integrating modernity in dynamic glass structures, with state-of-the-art amenities within. What hurtles do our designers face? How do they make their image stand apart from the rest? And how do deals on the design side of the table get made? 

Join us as industry leaders provide their experienced insight and perspective, and forecast the future of architecture and design in the D.C. region.
