Opening Networking Reception

30 Hudson Yards – 63rd Floor

Sponsored by Wells Fargo


Hudson Yards, the nation’s largest private development, officially opened March 15, 2019.  Wells Fargo, which itself was incorporated by Henry Wells and William G. Fargo at the Astor House in New York on March 18, 1852, before opening in San Francisco, is one of the founding partners and preferred bank of Hudson Yards. The multiyear and multi-use project is being built on 28 acres above a rail yard and expected to be completed in 2025. It features more than 18 million square feet of office, retail, recreational, and residential space — more than any other real estate development in U.S. history.


Wells Fargo has 22 branches and more than 3,500 team members working in the city for several of its businesses. Hudson Yards is now headquarters for the company’s Corporate & Investment Banking business, which moved more than 2,000 team members from midtown Manhattan into nine floors of the 30 Hudson Yards office tower.

U.S. Multifamily Market Outlook & Forecast

The Multifamily sector has performed better than most property types since the end of the last recession. There has been a big increase in multifamily construction over the past few years, yet a shortage of affordable rental housing persists across the country.  What are the drivers behind multifamily fundamentals, what risks may be mounting, and what are the expectations over the near term and what could the implications be for the sector overall over the coming decade? This session will cover these topics and try to come up with some possible outcomes.
