The sharing economy is transforming the commercial real estate industry with co-working and co-living. Smart cities are being planned across the globe and are expected to completely re-wire what residents expect from their environments. The world around us is changing rapidly and we need to focus on what's next, while learning from the mistakes of the past. Our speakers’ forward thinking will give you a fresh perspective. Developments discussed will include the new Quarters building, in the Fulton Market District of Chicago. Caton is working on similar projects nationwide with the Medici Group, of Berlin, Germany.
