Demographic Shifts and Real Estate - an OC-MBA event

The Wharton Club of Southern California and the UCLA-Anderson Club of Southern California proudly host a special event: The Changing Composition of Southern California’s People and the Real Estate they Demand.

Sponsored by Gilchrist and Rutter

A panel of pre-eminent real estate and economic development pros will lead a dynamic discussion about the key demographic trends impacting how the Southern California real estate market (and thus, how we live, work and play) will evolve over the next decade.

As the Baby Boomers become empty nesters in droves, how do they want to live? Will they give up their suburban single-family homes in favor of easier-to-maintain urban condos in close proximity to cultural centers and entertainment? How will they spend their money? What will be the impact on the second-home market as this wealthy demographic group retires?

As the Echo Boomers enter the workforce and their twenties en masse, what product types will be en vogue and which ones will become passé? With the relative dearth of multi-family housing built over the last 15 years due to challenging entitlement conditions in Southern California, will there be a major development opportunity in this space? Will they live, work and shop in the suburbs, or will they prefer the buzz, density and eclectic urban core? How will government officials respond to this demand for density?

In addition, the population in Southern California is among the most ethnically diverse in the nation and this diversity is projected to increase going forward as the population grows and immigration to California continues. What are the implications of the ethnic diversity of the region on real estate development? How will the way that different groups live, shop and play impact the types of buildings and shopping centers developed in Southern California going forward? What are some successful examples for developers and financiers to look to for future development projects targeted at the different ethnic groups that make up Southern California?

Come hear a panel of experts discuss one of the most important factors that will change the face of real estate in Southern California in the coming years.
