Scenes From CO’s ‘Brooklyn Renaissance’ Breakfast at Industry City

With more than 200 showing out for Commercial Observer’s “Brooklyn Renaissance” breakfast Wednesday, some of the who’s who in real estate both from the borough and outside ventured to Sunset Park to hear what’s next for the borough. We were able to capture some of those Brooklyn players mingling and gnoshing on a lucrative breakfast spread. There was also a few attendees who are venturing into the borough such as Bill Rudin, whose Rudin Management is doing a ground-up development at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Bill Rudin of Rudin Management not only made an appearance, but had a question or two for the panel.
Andrew Kimball, the chief executive officer of Industry City, delivered opening remarks before taking his place on the panel.
Commercial Observer’s recent Brooklyn issue provided for some reading on the booming borough.
Ofer Cohen of TerraCRG gave his take on Brooklyn’s emergence.
Jonathan Mechanic of Fried, Frank, Michael Phillips of Jamestown and Jim Brett of West Elm.
Panelists MaryAnne Gilmartin of Forest City Ratner Companies, Joseph Cirone of Cushman & Wakefield and Jim Brett of West Elm.
