The level of knowledge here is unsurpassed from any I’ve ever seen.David Gilbert: The topic today is pretty broad, but we’re starting New York-centric: what’s the impact of TAMI demand and technology in the office markets and how that is evolving and what factors would influence it in the future. William L. Mack: Where are we in the cycle? What is the next move? What are the things that are affecting the real estate business? Where is the money and the liquidity coming from? Arielle Le Bail: The trends, the macro trends, the influence of political instability …Jason M. Ellis: The quality of the speakers has been amazing. There’s been, I think, an incredible level of expertise that you don’t usually see at similar conferences.
Kenneth Weissenberg: We draw an audience that’s also consisting of top CEOs and C-level executives from major companies. They’re focused on real estate. Arielle Le Bail: Larry Silverstein, who is the master in real estate … Joe Berko: Casual conversation with the Larry Silversteins and Francis Greenburgers of the world, who’ve seen every available cycle in recent memory.Jason M.

Joe Berko: Demand is shifting, interest is shifting, we’re now seeing that places like Brooklyn are competing with midtown and asking for and receiving similar rents. Arielle Le Bail: Just recently, Mayor DeBlasio said that we have in New York, I think, 14,500 building that have to be retrofitted with energy-efficient improvements. It’s one of the big challenges of the century – to bring energy efficiency to our cities. Annamarie Gonzalez: Hearing top guys talk about where they’re investing is really helpful to us when we’re taking a forward view of the market and seeing where the money is going.
