Real Estate, Restoration and Transportation on Long Island Conference
The Wilbur F. Breslin Center for Real Estate Studies at Hofstra University is hosting a free conference February 7, 2013 about development and transportation, with a particular focus on post-Hurricane Sandy restoration. The conference, Real Estate, Restoration and Transportation on Long Island, presented by the Institute of Real Estate at Hofstra University, will feature a panel of regional and state leaders, including Helena Williams, president of the Long Island Rail Road, and Joan McDonald, New York State Transportation Commissioner.
The program, which includes a luncheon, will be held at the Hofstra University Club, David S. Mack Hall, North Campus from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. We are no longer accepting Registration for this event.
Originally, the conference was scheduled for early November, with a focus on transit-oriented development on Long Island. But after Hurricane Sandy, the scope of the event was changed to address the new challenges facing Long Island after the storm, said Richard Guardino, vice president of business development and executive dean of the Wilbur F. Breslin Center for Real Estate Studies.
“We had to reschedule the conference because of the storm, and when we did, we knew restoration and resiliency would be a big part of the conversation,” Guardino said. “It was clear that any discussion of development and transportation in our region inevitably had to include those issues.”
The panelists also include: Marianne Garvin, president and chief executive officer of the Community Development Corporation of Long Island; Marc Herbst, executive direction of the Long Island Contractors Association; David Pennetta, principal, Oxford & Simpson Realty, Inc.; and Matthew Whalen, senior vice president, Avalon Bay Communities. The discussion will be moderated by Gary Lewi, senior executive vice president of Rubenstein Associates, Inc.
