It’s supposedly a simple, straightforward sector. It’s an asset class that delivers income and some appreciation in property values. And it’s an overall safe investment. Yet beneath the surface, the industry is transforming in many ways. Players rise and fall. New tactics emerge. The use of technology can affect funding and financing. In other words, there are always disruptions taking place. Here we profile 10 disrupters (actually 11, since one profile is of the two principals of one firm).hese disrupters include some familiar names and some new ones. They underscore key trends—urbanization of retail, crowdfunding, microapartments and the reemergence of CMBS, to name a few. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/people/10-disrupters-individuals-who-are-charting-future-commercial-real-estate" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/people/10-disrupters-individuals-who-are-charting-future-commercial-real-estate#comments Brokerage CMBS Development Finance & Investment Medical Office Multifamily News Office People Retail West Mobile Alert Fri, 18 Jul 2014 14:10:00 +0000 1039071 at http://nreionline.com Greening the Construction Codes http://nreionline.com/commentary/greening-construction-codes <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>This year, the International Code Council is considering changes for the 2015 edition of its green building code—the International Green <span class='keyword_link'><a href="/services/construction?intlink=incontent " title="Commercial Real Estate Construction">Construction</a></span> Code.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/commentary/greening-construction-codes" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/commentary/greening-construction-codes#comments Associations & Designations Government Commentary Construction Multifamily News Office Freemium Wed, 16 Jul 2014 14:33:00 +0000 1039081 at http://nreionline.com Mayor de Blasio Plans Sustainable Retrofit Pilot Program for NYC http://nreionline.com/green-projects-retrofits/mayor-de-blasio-plans-sustainable-retrofit-pilot-program-nyc <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's $41 billion affordable housing plan includes a pilot program that would boost much-needed sustainability projects at affordable multifamily properties in the city.
