Land Use Roundtable: Beating the Odds

Sheppard Mullin, San Francisco
August 31, 2010

By Invitation Only

Join our panel of industry experts as they discuss the state of development in the Bay Area. They will address:

  • how to maintain a solid, year after year tenant and lender relationship when the market swings from "yeah, let's go" to "whoa, not so much"
  • examples of projects that have made headway, and developers' perspectives on why banks sometimes say "no go"
  • what lenders are looking for and what projects they ARE funding
  • how to build a robust portfolio of leases with locals, regionals and nationals to get a wide swath of creative deal-making

Tuesday, August 31
11:45 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. - Registration & Networking
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. - Roundtable Q&A and Lunch
