What is it to be a Commercial Real Estate Developer in 2019?

All-in Debate with Two of the Region's Heaviest Hitters

Kai Reynolds of JBG Smith and Austen Holderness of Carr Properties go head-to-head providing the audience with local insights and perspective on global topics. Presiding over the match is Martin Ditto of Ditto Residential. The event will open with a Market Update from Will Rich of Delta Associates.

The stage is set with Altus Group's 2018 Development Trends Report, How the Global Property Development Industry is Responding to Disruption and Rapidly-Changing Market Pressures, that discusses how major industry trends are impacting top CRE companies development pipelines. Some responses were expected, some surprising, and some downright confusing.

Through this lens, how are two of DC’s prominent real estate firms operating in the current market, preparing for the future, and taking advantage of or mitigating against the biggest trends in the industry?
