Rudin and Knakal on New York’s Opportunities

There’s no shortage of opportunities in New York commercial real estate for 2019. And, apparently, there’s no shortage of views on what constitutes the year’s biggest opportunity.

At the recent Real Estate Board of New York 123rd Annual Banquet, Connect Commercial Real Estate asked a cross-section of heavy hitters, including REBNY chair William Rudin (pictured), where they see the brightest opportunity 2019 has to offer. Some, including JLL’s Robert Knakal, cited opportunity zones. Others identified retail, life sciences and development in the outer boroughs as fertile ground.

In the video above, you’ll hear from Rudin and Knakal, along with REBNY award winners Alex Bernstein and Bernard Warren, CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe, Marcus & Millichap’s Eric Anton, Meridian’s David Schechtman, Lendlease’s Melissa Burch, Douglaston Development’s Jeffrey Levine and Lee & Associates’ Joel Herskowitz.
