ATLANTA—The construction industry is ever-changing, with costs, tenant habits and transportation being among the issues constantly in flux. With those changes, developers, planners, and builders are constantly looking for new and better ways to do business.

Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Nellie Shipley Sullivan will moderate a session on “Building a Better Tomorrow: Emerging Construction Trends” at the Marcus & Millichap/IPA Multifamily Forum Southeast, which takes place March 22 in Atlanta.

Joining Sullivan for the panel discussion will be Waypoint Residential Senior Vice President – Development Construction Management Kelly Carter, Banko Design Director of Business Development Linda Gerety, and Hathaway Development Partner Nick Hathaway.

The Emerging Construction Trends session is one of many scheduled for Multifamily Forum Southeast. Other topics to be addressed include:

  • A comparison of national versus southeast construction markets;
  • Key factors in regional growth;
  • Successful development strategies in uncertain markets;
  • The evolution of property management; and
  • Federal, state and local energy and specialty tax incentives.

Multifamily Forum Southeast will bring together multifamily owners, investors, managers, and developers to create an in-person marketplace for learning, discovery, networking, and deal-making.
