Attendance is building for CAPRE’s Third Annual Newark CRE Summit, the next installment in the popular NJ Commercial Real Estate Series. More than 300+ are expected to convene for this high-level information and networking conference on July 27 at Robert Treat Hotel in Newark. Investors, developers, capital sources and tenants continue to find new opportunities in Newark. However, many industry analysts suggest the commercial real estate market is facing headwinds in 2017, notably an oversupply in luxury multifamily rentals, the changing cost of debt and equity, combined with political uncertainty on a global scale. CAPRE’s Third Annual Newark CRE Summit will bring together the key stakeholders in Brick City for important discussion, debate and networking. What are the unique investment and development opportunities in Newark? What are the industry challenges?  The summit will feature high-level panel discussions and case studies about the Newark’s most exciting projects. Join 300+ on July 27 for this important industry event.
