The Future of New York's Real Estate Market

New York’s real estate market is changing rapidly. Much of the city was recently (or is poised to be) re-zoned and development is creating entirely new neighborhoods such as Hudson Yards. At the same time, rising rents have posed a challenge for New Yorkers in both the residential and commercial space. Innovations are emerging such as co-working spaces, micro-housing units and new uses for vacant retail stores. This discussion will examine current trends and provide context about where we are headed.  

Opening Remarks by Phillip St. Pierre, Senior General Manager at The Howard Hughes Corporation

Followed by a panel discussion with:

 

Moderated by Ken Biberaj, Manhattan Chamber Board Chairman

Chairman's Breakfast Featuring Marc Morial, President & CEO of the National Urban League

Join us for a conversation featuring Marc Morial, entrepreneur, lawyer, professor, legislator, mayor, president, U.S. Conference of Mayors, and president and CEO of the National Urban League, the nation's largest historic civil rights and urban advocacy organization.

In a distinguished professional career that has spanned 25 years, Marc Morial has performed all of these roles with excellence and is one of the most accomplished servant-leaders in the nation. As President and CEO of the National Urban League since 2003, he has been the primary catalyst for an era of change -- a transformation for the 105-year old civil rights organization. His energetic and skilled leadership has expanded the League’s work around an Empowerment agenda, which is redefining civil rights in the 21st century with a renewed emphasis on closing the economic gaps between whites and Blacks, as well as other communities of color, and rich and poor Americans.

During his tenure, the League had record fundraising success with a 280MM, five-year fundraising effort. He has secured the BBB nonprofit certification, which has established the NUL as a leading national nonprofit, and the coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, which has placed the NUL in the top 10 percent of all U.S. charities for adhering to good governance and other best practices, as well as executing its mission in a fiscally responsible way.

*This event is by invitation only. Invitations are non-transferable.
