Young Leaders Group (YLG) presents a program focusing on two shared economy concepts—food halls and co-living—to discuss how to “Unlock Value through Alternative Development Uses.” Our panel will delve into the advantages and challenges including discussions on underwriting, sourcing capital, zoning and city regulations, marketing and branding, programming and operations.

SteelCraft represents the food hall development approach with a proven outdoor eatery concept utilizing repurposed shipping contains. SteelCraft’s first proof of concept is in the Bixby Knoll’s neighborhood of Long Beach with two similar developments under construction in Bellflower and Garden Grove.

Representing co-living, Ollie, a national co-living designer and operator, offers furnished micro studios, bedrooms and micro-suites with shared community spaces to provide hotel-style conveniences fostering a live, work, play environment. Ollie has communities in New York City, Boston, Pittsburgh, and Los Angeles in operation and/or development.

This event is sponsored by ULI LA Young Leaders Group.
