Connect Los Angeles brought together more than 450 CRE leaders for an information packed conference June 21st at the Hotel Indigo DTLA. During four panel discussions, top CRE leaders shared insights about the future of Los Angeles CRE, including how neighborhoods are being transformed, investment and development opportunities, CRE investment strategies and capital markets. Connect Media will be sharing more in-depth reports of each panel over the coming days, but here’s a few key takeaways and highlights that stood out from yesterday’s conversations.

The noteworthy moment of the conference was a special Lifetime Achievement Award presented to Nelson Rising that included a retrospective through the experiences of close friends, business partners and his son, Chris. (Pictured above L to R: Chris Rising, Rising Realty Partners, Ted Antenucci, Catellus Development Corp., Nelson Rising, David Herbst, Vectis Strategies, Jeff DeBoer, Real Estate Roundtable.)
