2nd Annual Fairfield County Real Estate Outlook Set for April 5th
Moderated by Eric Bernheim, Esq. of Halloran & Sage LLP
Westport, Conn. (March 23rd, 2018) – The second annual Fairfield County Real Estate Outlook set for Tues., April 5th will feature an esteemed group of panelists who will provide insights on real estate developments including the SoNo Collection, the Downtown Darien Project, and the proposed mixed-use development for East Norwalk’s historic hat factory. The event, sponsored by the Greater Norwalk Chamber of Commerce and the Westport-Weston Chamber of Commerce, will be held at The Shorehaven Golf Club, 14 Canfield Ave., Norwalk, and will begin at 8am with breakfast and networking.
Eric Bernheim, Esq. of Halloran & Sage LLP, will moderate the panel discussion. Bernheim oversees Halloran & Sage’s Westport, Conn. Land Use and Real Estate Practice Group, which handles all real estate, zoning, land use and real estate litigation matters.
“Fairfield county real estate continues to thrive,” Bernheim said. “These progressive real estate projects maximize the use of existing real estate to bolster the economy, create jobs, and further enhance the offerings of our local communities.”
Esteemed panelists include:
- Doug Adams, General Growth Properties’ Senior Director of Development, will offer insight on the construction of the 700,000+ square foot retail center, best known as the SoNo Collection. Anticipated as the last mall ever to be built, the SoNo Collection will be a vibrant, upscale shopping center strengthening a once-vacant city space.
- Jessica Curtis, Senior Managing Director of Newmark Knight Frank, will discuss strategic growth opportunities for expanding restaurant brands. To meet the real estate trend of creating lifestyle centers that offer multiple restaurant options, Curtis partners her restaurant clients with landlords who desire a non-traditional approach to food, beverage and entertainment.
- R. David Genovese, CEO of Baywater Properties and co-developer of the Downtown Darien Project, will discuss the project’s residential, retail and recreational opportunities, which are focused on designing a walkable community with classic charm featuring emerging retailers, restaurants and housing.
- Kim Morque, Principal and President of Norwalk-based Spinnaker Real Estate Partners’, will address the company’s proposal to rejuvenate the renowned hat factory adjacent to the East Norwalk train station. This proposed mixed-use development project would convert the area into a transit-oriented district offering retail and housing.
The Fairfield County Real Estate Outlook will be valuable for developers, lenders, retail tenants, and investors. Seats can be reserved for $30 by emailing or calling either Chamber office.
