If you are reading this magazine, you obviously are interested in both real estate and the role of connectivity in commercial buildings and campuses. You recognize the fast pace of change and know keeping up with the latest developments can be very challenging.

One of the developments that is transforming society is the Smart City movement. Cities and communities are innovating in the Transportation, Public Safety, Utility and Built Environment sectors in ways that are changing societal dynamics. Real Estate and particularly Commercial Office Buildings and Campuses have been a major focus of this effort as they utilize over 30% of a city’s total energy on average, impact roadways during commute times and have the potential to help drive economic development.

As part of the tangible effects of Smart Cities, new expectations and standards favor LEED-certified development and stricter energy efficiency requirements. The City of Orlando, for instance, has a program called Greenworks that requires increased energy efficiency and monitoring of all commercial buildings. It has been very successful and currently has 232 compliant buildings. (https://www.orlando.gov/Initiatives/2018-Community-Action-Plan#section-4). Sensors and IoT are central to reporting the performance of each building.

Trends in transportation are impacting buildings and promise to be even more impactful in the future. Shared ridership services like Uber and Lyft are dependent on Smart Phones and require more attention to curb management and may impact parking. Autonomous Cars and shuttles are also projected to have a major impact on commuting and parking as future vehicles may not be owned or require nearby parking but require more space for drop off and pick up.

“Cities and communities are innovating in the Transportation, Public Safety, Utility and Built Environment sectors in ways that are changing societal dynamics.”

In St. Louis, the event will be hosted by Graybar with Keynotes from the Chief Technical Officer of St. Louis, Robert Gaskill-Clemons and the Chief Innovation Officer of Columbus, Ohio, Michael Stevens.

The Connected Real Estate panel will start at 11:30 am and run until lunch at 12:30 pm. Berliner will moderate and be joined by Corning VP, Bill Cune and leaders from Graybar, Gabe’s and Granite Telecom. They will discuss technologies (CBRS, DAS, IoT, Fiber and Wi Fi) in the In-Building space. Coverage and Capacity are essential to tenants. Increasingly, tenants and property managers are connecting more and more devices and putting new demands on the infrastructure. Immediately following the panel lunch, networking will take place until 2 pm.

KEN DI SCIPIO

After St. Louis, the tour heads to Los Angeles for Mobile World Congress for a lunch at the Palm restaurant across from the Convention Center. The program starts at 11 with a look at how the City of Long Beach built a new City Center and upgraded their technical capabilities in the process. After a delicious Palm steak lunch, Berliner will lead a panel led by Ken DiScipio, SVP, Tavistock Development Company in a review of Connected Real Estate trends and capabilities. The tour stops at Ruth’s Chris 51st Street location in New York on Nov. 14 for a day devoted to Connected Real Estate. Leaders from the New York Real Estate scene will share the stage with Connectivity leaders as we do a deep dive into the business models, technology architectures and use cases transforming both high-rise commercial real estate as well as innovations enabling new capability for medium-sized buildings and tenants from 50,000 sq. feet. During the evening there will be a networking event between 5 pm and 8 pm.

Given the high rate of change, Connected Real Estate will continue to increase educational content and networking with the experts that are innovating and applying these technologies. Connectivity is a critical service for tenants and creates better tenant satisfaction and a more efficiently operating building. Connected Real Estate and Connected Cities are a natural fit. Look for more events in 2020.
