Future of the Philadelphia Suburbs

  • Speaking

As construction costs continue to rise and space becomes more challenging to find in Philadelphia, developers and consumers are looking to the suburbs for answers. From the industrial boom in the Lehigh Valley to the retail surge in King of Prussia, these suburban markets have the potential to draw residents and tenants out of the city’s confines.

Join CLA, Bisnow, and some of Philadelphia’s top developers for a discussion about which Philadelphia suburbs are on the rise. We’ll talk about what needs to be done to keep them on top, and how developers can help these suburbs become 24/7 hubs in which people of all ages would like to live, work, and play.

During this session, we will cover:

  • Why office tenants are moving out of Center City and into the suburbs
  • How developers can make King of Prussia a multifamily and office hub
  • How the industrial boom has impacted Philadelphia’s suburbs
  • Changes that could make the suburban market more appealing to millennials
  • The potential for Camden to become the next “it” Philadelphia suburban hub
