Did you miss the BizTimes Commercial Real Estate and Development Conference? Not to worry – the on-demand content is available HERE. This multi-part virtual conference featured speakers on the areas of ‘future of workplace’ and ‘developing Milwaukee’s neighborhoods’.
The dramatic news events of 2020 have been felt everywhere, including the southeastern Wisconsin commercial real estate industry. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to adapt to having many of their employees working remotely. At the same time, civil unrest across the country has drawn increased attention to the issue of racial inequality in communities across America, including Milwaukee, Kenosha and the rest of southeastern Wisconsin.
The 2020 BizTimes Media Commercial Real Estate and Development Conference featured a pair of panel discussions that looked at two key issues that have been front and center this year:
1) How will work at home practices adopted during the COVID-19 pandemic impact the future of the Milwaukee office market?
2) What opportunities exist, and what challenges are in place, to attract economic development to Milwaukee’s lower income neighborhoods?
