NAIOP Development Unicorns Preview
Next Thursday, 9/13/18, the top development minds in Boston will meet for NAIOP’s Development Unicorns breakfast event at the Seaport Boston Hotel. The event will feature a keynote from David Manfredi of Elkus Manfredi along with a panel discussion featuring Donald Briggs of Federal Realty, Steve Samuels of Samuels & Associate, and Yanni Tsipis of WS Development. The panel will be moderated by Sara Cassidy, Executive Director at AEW Capital Management. Cassidy shared her excitement for the event with BLDUP stating, “This is such a great panel! This caliber of speakers is hard to get together in one room. Donald, Steve, and Yanni are visionaries."
While there are countless questions for the minds behind Assembly Row, The Fenway, and Seaport Square, Cassidy plans to delve deeper into what initially triggered these opportunities. She hopes to gain some insight into how each of these brilliant developers had their unique vision that turned these neighborhoods into Boston’s most sought after. Cassidy also wants to dig into “placemaking”, a very important aspect of all three of these projects and will, of course, look to the future of these neighborhoods and the Boston development scene.
