Lakeside is the catalyst for a “New Chicago.”  Learn how the joint venture of McCaffery Interests and United States Steel Corporation is transforming over 600 acres of Lake Michigan waterfront property, that was once America’s largest steel mill, into a compelling model for a 21st century community that focuses on a lifestyle of live, work, educate and recreate.  Founded on innovation principles that include sustainable, “next generation infrastructure” and clean technology ranging from communication, to transportation to energy, Lakeside encapsulates and commercializes the future of urban redevelopment.  Representatives of Lakeside’s redevelopment team will share exclusive redevelopment insights, lessons learned, and forthcoming project plans.  With the recent official opening of South Lakeshore Drive bisecting Lakeside from north to south, the program will conclude with tours of the site for a first-hand view of Lakeside and the coming “New Chicago.”

Like a Phoenix rising from the depths of the great recession to being the hottest asset class, multi-family continues to be everyone’s shining star. Will CAP rates continue to compress? With downtown new construction to value add throughout the city and suburbs, will all the new product being built be absorbed without concessions or a retrenchment in rental rates? Will large funds continue to enter the Chicago market and purchase non-traditional assets? Please join us for an engaging discussion with our experts who have been extremely active throughout it all.
