Skyscraper Museum: “Whither Wall Street” Panel

On October 13th, I will be participating on a panel at the Museum of American Finance at 48 Wall Street for an event organized by The Skyscraper Museum. Other real estate colleagues and I will be discussing the FiDi (Financial District) market place in Lower Manhattan and specifically the area along Wall Street, which is rich in American history. FiDi has seen many changes over the last decade, not to mention the redevelopment of The World Trade Center, which is now fully under construction with new office buildings, new transportation hubs, and the September 11th Museum. The event will bring to the table important issues about the future of Wall Street’s development and the affect on residents, businesses and tourists. I plan to bring forth some interesting perspectives that I have accumulated in my experience in the FiDi area. With properties on Wall Street and elsewhere in the FiDi, I have watched the neighborhood transform itself into one of the most vibrant, mixed-use neighborhoods in America.

The event will take place at 48 Wall Street, a building owned by Swig Equities, LLC in association with MacDonald & Cie, which was dedicated as a public landmark by The New York Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2002. Celebrating the history and preserving the integrity of such a rich area is a topic that has always interested me. I look forward to hearing what the other panelist contribute.
