Massive mixed-use projects like Metropolis and Angels Landing are helping to transform Downtown Los Angeles, but the neighborhood is still “adolescent at best. It’s not even driving yet,” according to one prominent new development broker.

Connect Real Estate Los Angeles featured a jam-packed afternoon of conversations, networking and presentations. More than 500 gathered at the Hotel Indigo in DTLA and heard from commercial real estate leaders and economists about the trends driving decisions in Los Angeles.
Connect Media attended Allen Matkins’ 2017 View from the Top real estate conference in Beverly Hills. We asked CRE market leaders to share their insights about what to expect in 2018. Watch today’s video to hear what Kilroy Realty’s John Kilroy, Rising’s Christopher Rising, Allen Matkins’ Tony Natsis and NKF’s Kevin Shannon think about what’s on CRE’s horizon. Yesterday, our video was on the market’s biggest trends and deals.
Many are anticipating the construction of the new Long Beach Civic Center.
When it is built, it will mark the first time a U.S. municipal government will deliver a city asset under a performance-based “design-build-finance-maintain” structure, according to Plenary Concessions Executive Chairman Dale Bonner.
There's no doubt about it - big changes are coming.
New technologies like artificial intelligence and automation will fundamentally alter the way we work. But what will that look like, and how should companies adapt?
This week on the show co-host Sean Spear interviews Chris Rising, the Founder and President of Rising Realty. Chris is a 19-year veteran of the real estate business, and someone who’s always been ahead of the curve in terms of building spaces that support how the most innovative companies work.
We loved this conversation because it brought together so many of the big ideas that we care about on this show - everything from office space and its relationship to culture, to personal habits and productivity, to the big technological changes poised to transform our economy and the workplace.
Sean met with Chris at Rising’s dramatic HQ in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. In this episode, Chris dives into his personal journey - including the lessons learned from his Jesuit education and his experience as a college football standout at Duke University - shares his daily habits, and explains why he thinks offices aren’t going away anytime soon.
This one runs a littler longer than most, but be sure to listen to the end to hear a challenge that should have a big impact on your energy and performance.

While most of the talk in leasing is the growth of tech tenants in the market, it's technology that's changing the industry as a whole. That was the consensus of speakers at Bisnow's Future of Real Estate: Design, Innovation & Tech on 3/31/15. And instead of discussion panels, experts gave brief talks on their world view. Here's what they had to say.
