Partners Peter Breckheimer and Elisa Paster to Speak at the USC Gould School of Law 2018 Real Estate Law and Business Forum

Peter Breckheimer, a Partner in Glaser Weil’s Real Estate Department, and Elisa Paster, a Partner in the Firm’s Government & Regulatory Department, will both present at the upcoming USC Gould School of Law’s 2018 Real Estate Law and Business Forum, “The Wild New World: Real Estate Responds to Sea Changes in Technology, Global Warming, Lifestyles and Demographics.” This full-day event, taking place on Thursday, April 12, 2018, at the Jonathan Club in downtown Los Angeles, will provide the latest information on industry trends and offer real-world strategies for dealing with major challenges.

Mr. Breckheimer will serve as the moderator on his panel, “Retail R/Evolution: How Shopping Malls and Big Box Retailers Are Adapting to the New Realities of Retail,” which will focus on how the changing retail landscape has sparked a need for a new round of innovation and development. Panelists will discuss how they are reusing and repurposing malls and big box locations to take advantage of immerging opportunities of a reenvisioned retail experience. 

Ms. Paster’s panel, “Solving Our Housing Crisis Through Transit Oriented Development: Panacea or Pie in the Sky?” will explore the use of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) to facilitate housing production and promote smart growth; legislative efforts at the state and local levels to promote TOD; lessons learned from past TODs; and the opportunities and challenges TODs present for developers and local jurisdictions.
