ULI Breakfast Meeting: DC's Multifamily Pipeline and Evolving Development Criteria

Wednesday, October 16, 2013
8:00 – 9:30 AM
Georgetown University – Downtown Campus
640 Massachusetts Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20001

Join Georgetown University Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning program and the Urban Land Institute for a panel discussion about the District's multi-family housing market and how local developers are working to stay successful in the face of a crowded apartment landscape. With margins compressing, competition intensifying and construction deliveries not letting up, a more thorough and nuanced understanding of this product type is important to the region's developers now more than ever.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Is the DC multifamily market overbuilt and if not will new deliveries push it in that direction?
  • Will the increased pipeline of multifamily product cause some developers to change course in favor of condo and if so in what submarkets?
  • How are developers changing their approach in DC based on the existing pipeline of new supply?
  • In a market with ever-increasing competition, what are developers doing to make a project stand-out and succeed?
  • What areas of the city are still under-developed and offer the greatest opportunities?
  • How are current market conditions impacting the ability to raise or source equity and receive construction/permanent financing from lenders?
  • How is the growth of the for-sale sector of the market impacting decision making for rental projects going forward?

Speakers:
Craig Thomas (Moderator) – Vice President, Market Research, AvalonBay Communities
Jim Butz – Founder & Principal of Jefferson Apartment Group
Kevin Riegler – Founder & Principal of CAS Riegler
Matt Robinson – Principal of MRP Realty
