May 25 | Oakland. . .The New Frontier – A Changing Face in the Bay Area Landscape

Join us for a candid discussion and gain an insider’s perspective on local real estate development projects, government policies, opportunities and economic impacts from two panels of locally active real estate developers and elected officials.

What are the major residential and commercial projects impacting the community? What level of involvement will local developers and contractors have in upcoming ventures? Who are the players? Where do the elected officials stand? What job opportunities exist now, during and after the development cycle? How are community needs addressed in the development of the “new” Oakland?
