The Tech sector has spurred growth in real estate values in cities such as San Francisco, Seattle and New York. Chicago is just starting to see the dynamics of this sector featuring the New Google HQ in the Fulton Market area and the 1871 tech incubator in the Merchandise Mart with the support of Mayor Emanuel.

Please join our expert panel as they explore how the Tech sector is positively impacting the downtown real estate market in the short and long term. How will Tech affect the Retail, Residential, Office and Hotel market and values in Chicago? Will Tech’s demand for highly educated employees change the patterns and values for Chicago moving forward? We hope you will join us for this very informative discussion.
