The Future of Real Estate: Driving An Industry Transition

The Future of Real Estate – Pathways for Industry Recovery and Transition.

COVID-19 has devastated communities and economies across the globe. As the pandemic slowly begins to ebb, the conversation on stimulus and recovery dominates, bringing to light the financial damage across real estate sectors like retail, hospitality and office and the need to revive portfolios and rethink the use of certain assets both immediately and on a more permanent basis. The crisis also presents a unique opportunity to rebuild better and accelerate change that was already underway. The need for more technologically advanced, affordable and healthy buildings will be critical for the industry to recover financially, support human and environmental health, and fortify against future threats.

Objectives:

·      Convene visible and transformative leadership that can shift the industry consensus, increase the understanding of what is possible and advance public-private collaboration to develop and implement effective policy 

·      Develop the Future of Real Estate Framework to guide the delivery of liveable, affordable, resilient and sustainable buildings and cities 

·      Grow a premier global community dedicated to disseminating the Future of Real Estate Framework for broad adoption and implementation
