PNM Partner Gene Leone moderates Bisnow’s Chicago State of the Market conference

Gene Leone (Partner – Pircher, Nichols & Meeks LLP) was moderator at Bisnow’s upcoming event titled, “Chicago State of the Market: Hospitality, Office & Capital Markets Outlook” on September 5 at 151 North Franklin in Chicago.

The hospitality and retail development in Chicago is booming. Mega-tenants such as Amazon are driving huge changes in the city, and major renovation plans are underway for the Chicago River to spur economic development and transform the river into a recreational amenity. The panel provided the audience with an insider’s look at what commercial real estate trends to anticipate in the hospitality and retail sectors and which projects are contributing to Chicago’s growth in those markets.

Panelists took an in-depth look at a wide range of topics affecting the hospitality and office markets. Some topics covered include space-as-a-service approaches to development, what the addition of prime entertainment facilities means for Chicago’s hospitality and retail market, how the macroeconomic environment is shaping commercial real estate, hospitality-based approaches to retail, and which amenity add-ons developers should be considering, in addition to a variety of other topics.
