Fordham REI Panelists Chart the Future

The Fordham Real Estate Institute (REI) recently held the fourth event in its Visionary Series CCL: The Future Role of CRE. The virtual panel discussion, Envisioning the Future: Technology, Innovation, and Obsolescence, took place on April 15 and gathered together some of the country’s leading minds in healthcare, development, construction, investment banking and architecture.
Divided into two discussions, the event, moderated by James Nelson, principal and head of Tri-State Investment Sales Group, Avison Young, covered topics such as supporting a remote workforce, the future of office and the ongoing importance of sustainability. 

The event began with a conversation between Nelson, Michael Dowling, president and CEO, Northwell Health and Jeffrey Levine, founder and chairman, Douglaston Development/Levine Builders/Clinton Management. For the second panel, Nelson was joined by Chris Mills, president and COO, Plaza Construction; Jennifer Stewart, global head of real estate, BNY Mellon, and Marc Zuluaga, CEO, Steven Winter Associates.
