Panel Discussion

30 October 2019
2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

Developing and marketing tall building properties has typically been, and still is, a conversation about square footage, amenities, and return on capital. As the age of the smart city dawns, however, long-term development planning must take account of enabling technologies that may be both within and exterior to the buildings themselves. This demands new alignment and strategic thinking around the confluence of technology and telecom companies, government, transportation and utilities providers, and the private development community. Hear from decision-makers behind the smart buildings and cities of the near future.
