The Long Island landscape has changed drastically since Levittown became a national symbol of postwar suburban sprawl, but the future remains uncertain. What challenges will today’s developers, municipalities, and residents face tomorrow in the ever-changing world of Long Island commercial and residential real estate? Join us for a wide-ranging panel discussion with a mix of important voices about the future of real estate on our island.
Our prominent panel of industry insiders will share their insights on critical topics including:
- How the values and preferences of millennials are already shaping commercial and residential development projects
- The impact of ride-sharing services such as Uber on plans for transit-oriented hubs
- How to attract new companies to Long Island and grow existing companies when decades-old zoning codes limit expansion opportunities
- The inventory shortage faced by young, would-be homebuyers as people remain in their homes longer thanks to longer life spans and the trend toward home-based elder care
- Amazon’s ever-increasing presence and its effect on big box retailers, leaving large-scale vacancies in previously busy Long Island shopping centers
- Rapidly growing 55+ senior communities and whether there’s a market for similar developments for young families
