IN THE KNOW: MOBs Past, Present and Future

“I thoroughly enjoyed the new format of roundtable discussions that was added to this year’s summit. I found the energy and trading of ideas to be a refreshing collaborative alternative to the “traditional” conference experience. The BOMA East Bay Summit was a huge success and one of Meridian’s favorite to sponsor.” – Llesenia Jones, Executive Assistant to the CEO

“The roundtable discussion, I joined, which was headed by David Bayliss of Millie and Severson, was excellent. It was helpful to discuss current construction market conditions and was especially interesting to hear what contractors are seeing with material pricing increases and labor shortages.” – Dave Kreske, LEED GA, Vice President of Construction

“We talked a lot about the various issues healthcare providers are struggling to overcome, from finding space for their medical offices to housing their staff. Meridian’s ability to find creative solutions by repositioning existing structures into medical offices can be a big opportunity in this market. – Jackie Perez, Project Manager

“I got to sit at the capital markets roundtable with Laef Barnes and Nadav Kariv of Avison Young. It was great to connect with them to get feedback on what they are seeing in the medical office investment sales market. In particular, there are a lot of capital partners out there looking for medical office investments in the bay area who will need on the ground operating expertise that Meridian can provide.” – Lorenzo Brooks, Director, Acquisitions

“It was great to learn the background and how we worked through various issues on our Berkeley Project while listening to Mike Conn’s case study presentation. In particular, understanding the importance of when we bring space to market, and how we were able to create additional parking spaces.” – Mike Costello, Acquisitions Analyst
