As our city skyline is scattered with cranes, BISNOW hosted nearly 200 registered members to discuss Seattle’s multifamily climate; specifically, its affordability, sustainability, and community design. Held at the Westin Seattle, three panels spanned a variety of topics, all relevant as the city experiences unprecedented population growth, construction costs, and housing demand.
As part of their revolving monthly forum, founding members Brian O’Connor (O’Connor Consulting Group), Brian Evans (Madrona Financial Services), and Dean Jones (RSIR) kicked off their inaugural broker panel discussion with a focus on the downtown Seattle housing market, with an emphasis on the effects of job growth, empty nesters downsizing, and the additional draws of downtown living.
Scores of guests assembled at MG2 Architecture in downtown Seattle during an evening reception on September 28th about the future of the Seattle and Bellevue metro area in the next decade. The town hall-like event was a continuation of provocative conversations started during the BISNOW “State of the Market” event hosted earlier in the week, which was attended by more than 400 industry stakeholders and local media.
