Please join us for an interactive panel on the future of real estate in Boston, with a focus on the "city vs. suburbs" debate that is consuming the greater Boston area (and the United States). The panel, moderated by Brian R. Iammartino, CFA, recipient of the 2017 Young Alumni Leader Award from the Wharton Club of Boston, will feature discussion topics including:

  • How will the housing, work and commuting preferences of millennials change as they age?
  • How much higher can urban rents and prices climb?
  • Do any suburbs or secondary cities outside of Boston offer value opportunities for housing or commercial space?
  • What are companies and developers doing to attract younger workers to suburban locations?
  • Do companies need an urban location to survive?
  • What is happening in “in-between” markets like Watertown and Medford?
