Philly CRE Is At A Crucial Juncture. Meet The Women At The Forefront

Though it still has a long way to go, commercial real estate in Philadelphia is enjoying an unprecedented period of strength for women leading the industry.

There is no better proof of that strength than the wealth of candidates for Bisnow’s Women Leading Real Estate Cocktail and Award Celebration, to be held at the Notary Hotel on Aug. 18. From those candidates, the 20 nominees picked by the selection committee have made their presence felt in myriad ways for millions of square feet worth of development across the region — as leaders, innovators, deal-makers and trailblazing rising stars.

Though the industry on the whole is in a period of heavy uncertainty, Philadelphia has made what seem to be permanent strides relative to its peer markets. The region has never been a more popular target for life sciences development, the city has never had so much residential construction and its marginalized groups have never had a better shot at being a part of it all. 

In other words, women are gaining more influence in Philadelphia real estate at a time when that influence can be deeply felt. That comes with a level of responsibility, but one that these women leading real estate are ready and excited for.
