Brooklyn Real Estate Roundtable Series


Learn about industry trends, expand your network, and make valuable business connections

Join us for the 2017 Brooklyn Real Estate Roundtable season, kicking off on Tuesday, February 7. The Real Estate Roundtable are quarterly events where the industry professionals gather for exclusive networking and to learn about the latest news in the borough. The February event will take a close look at the Red Hook neighborhood, featuring Q&As with:

Jill Eisenhard, Founder & Executive Director, Red Hook Initiative: Under Eisenhard’s leadership, the Red Hook Initiative has developed a model for social change and youth development that empowers youth and community members to become agents of change in their own lives and within their neighborhood. RHI currently employs over 125 residents of Red Hook, keeping the majority of financial resources within the neighborhood. RHI built a “green” energy-efficient building, tested when Hurricane Sandy hit Red Hook in October 2012 and a hub for relief and rebuilding work in the neighborhood. Eisenhard and RHI received the 2012 “Building Brooklyn Award” in the community development category, granted by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, among many other honors.

Marshall Sohne, Sohne Brothers: For the past 30 years, Sohne has been a real estate developer, working on residential commercial and mixed-use properties projects in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Sohne will discuss his experiences in Red Hook where he has developed properties with a particular focus on passive housing that reduce the carbon footprint of buildings and promote a better quality of life.

Chris Ward, Chief Executive, AECOM Metro New York: Ward will discuss the Southwest Brooklyn framework that AECOM created to explore potential development scenarios for Red Hook and Sunset Park. As head of AECOM’s Design and Consulting Services in the New York Metropolitan area, he oversees transportation, water and wastewater, environment, power, and buildings and places. His 30-plus-year career in infrastructure and government includes a successful tenure at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, where he led the World Trade Center rebuilding effort.

Joy Sinderbrand, Vice President for the Office of Recovery and Resilience, NYCHA: Created in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the Office of Recovery and Resilience is responsible for repairing developments throughout Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan impacted by Sandy and incorporating resilient design elements that will guide future construction throughout NYCHA’s portfolio. The team manages the execution of projects at 33 developments under NYCHA’s record $3 billion FEMA grant program and other funding.

Al Wei, Senior Associate Principal, Kohn Pedersen Fox-Associates: Al advises government and property-sector clients on innovative and sustainable urban planning and design strategies using measurable performance standards, systems-based thinking, technology, market awareness, creative programming, people-centric placemaking techniques, development and land-use control guidelines, and green building and infrastructure systems. Al has over 15 years experience in the design, development and financing of master plans, urban systems and infrastructure
