Spotlight: CREW Portland

Reinvesting and reimagining were the key topics at the 2023 CREW Portland Forecast Breakfast. Unique insights regarding current issues affecting the commercial real estate market were shared during both the keynote address and the panel discussion.

“Public policy and those who lead it really can shape what the future will hold for any given area. . . . This is a time when there are tremendous opportunities. When there is an opportunity for the city to reinvent itself and refresh itself.”
