Urbs or Burbs: Where are the best development and investment opportunities?

Presented by Fordham Real Estate Institute, Counselors of Real Estate (CRE), Columbia University, and Professional Women in Construction (PWC).

REI was joined by real estate thinkers and practitioners as they compared the pluses and minuses of development across North America's regions, markets and sub-markets. Topics included relative economic strengths and weaknesses, demographic trends, infrastructure, government policy, construction issues, building technology, capital flows, and other key variables that play into overall prospects for development.
