2:25 pm - 3:25 pmOC Development: Navigating an Active Pipeline

OC developers are looking to capitalize on new development, redevelopment and the repositioning of product across the food groups – what do you need to know? Although many large corporate headquarters are migrating to the middle of the country, are there still enough corporations and growing startups to keep demand elevated for OC offices? How can retail developers create an interactive experience in open-air centers by incorporating eatertainment, innovative soft goods, cutting edge fitness and more into their space? How are industrial developers staying relevant in a coastal market when supply is shrinking and inventory is being repurposed to multifamily, office and hotel space? If land becomes scarce and pricing is high, will developers and owners look outside of the market? OC’s most active developers share their insights on and outlooks for the development pipeline, how to successfully strategize across the property types and much more.

3:25 pm - 4:10 pmMultifamily: On the Rise or at Its Peak?

Increased demand for multifamily development is supported by a younger generation willing to sacrifice equity for location. Home ownership is no longer important, walking to work and access to entertainment is the new priority. Orange County will hit a 15-year high due to the construction of more than 4,000 units – what does this mean for buyer demand? Rent is at an all-time high, will low vacancy rate help that trend continue, or will lease rates finally hit their peak? If the multifamily sector is further along in the cycle than other property types, when will the market hit the peak? Industry experts will discuss the market outlook and share how you can leverage opportunities to remain competitive.

Concerns about the global financial markets and volatility on Wall Street have left investors seeking a secure place to store their money. Many investors –foreign and domestic– have turned to Orange County CRE for wealth management and appreciation prospects.
