In the first segment of the 2018 Art of Development Series, YLG Programs offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of a development project, The Current in Long Beach. We will look at the team of consultants involved in a development project and discuss the roles each team member plays during the development process, explaining how they add value to the overall project. We have gathered a panel consisting of Ryan Altoon at Anderson Pacific and three of his consultants specializing in architecture, construction, and engineering. The panel will discuss The Current in Long Beach, highlighting how each consultant added value to the development deal, as viewed from both the developer and consultant side.

Key topics will be germane to The Current, driven by actual obstacles overcome before and during construction. The discussion will be augmented by select visuals provided by the development team. Additionally, the event will be interactive, with an audience Q&A session in the latter half of the evening.

Light refreshments will be served.
