Event Details

In the first half of 2018, there were more than 4,000 Phase I ESAs conducted in the Chicago metro area—a robust 7% more than the first half of 2017. The area’s appeal to tech companies, strong employment growth and Midwest location are driving strong demand for Phase I ESAs, particularly on industrial properties.

Planning for 2019: The Latest Insights on a Market in Transition
Dianne Crocker, Principal Analyst, EDR Insight 

Amid strong market fundamentals, high interest in site reuse, rapid technological advancement and intense competition, the commercial real estate is performing well as the record-setting recovery marches on. It’s difficult to plan for the end of the party when you’re still having a good time, but the next downturn could be here as early as 18-24 months from now—and the time to start planning is now.

There is much to be grateful for: abundant capital to fund property deals, strong interest in adaptive reuse, new life in smaller metros, a strong economy and rising corporate profits. Yet the headwinds are growing: rising interest rates, moderating property sales, growing geopolitical tension and uncertainty about the market’s endurance. The dynamics of the deal are also changing as lenders and investors become more cautious. Get an inside look at the drivers fueling environmental due diligence, the latest near-term forecast and what you can expect to see in your market in 2019.


The Building Energy Efficiency Opportunity Heats Up
Anthony Buonicore, Chairman, Sustainable Real Estate Solutions, Inc. and ASTM Green PCA Task Force

A confluence of economic, regulatory and technological forces are driving more attention onto a building’s operating efficiency. This trend is opening up new, exciting opportunities in the property condition assessment space. During this track, attendees will hear the latest developments on the evolving ASTM Green PCA standard, the popularity of green lending programs at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, private sector drivers for energy efficiency assessments, and the data being harnessed to measure a property’s energy efficiency during property due diligence.


Voice of a Local Expert

So much makes the Chicago commercial real estate market unique—and complex. A growing slate of environmental risks are becoming a standard part of property due diligence. During this track, you will hear from a local expert on the hot topics impacting property risk assessments in this area.
