London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Mumbai are moving ahead with vast infrastructure projects that fuel new real estate development, while the US rests on the work of its predecessors. This should concern us far more than it does, says Columbia professor Vishaan Chakrabarti, who also heads urban planning firm VCDC. He’s a panelist this Wednesday at Bisnow’s Public-Private Partnership Breakfast & Schmooze, headlined by NYC Economic Development Corp. prez Seth Pinsky.

Vishaan, flanked by Columbia’s Devon Ercolano Provan and Cushman & Wakefield’s Bruce Mosler. Dense development relies on great infrastructure, and we need better public-private partnerships to accomplish this, he says. Some struggles: How does the public sector establish their contribution to infrastructure versus the public good being generated? How much upside is there for the private sector versus the extraordinary risks? It's critical to get public and private incentives and goals aligned, he notes. Vishaan joins Fried Frank’s Melanie Meyers, Forest City Ratner’s MaryAnne Gilmartin, and Kohn Pedersen Fox’s Paul Katz to discuss this and more. Don’t miss out. Register here!
