Steven M. Charney, Chairman of Peckar & Abramson, will participate in a panel discussion at Anchin’s 5th Annual Construction and Development Forum on February 6, 2019 at The New York Academy of Sciences in New York City. With the arrival of Amazon in Long Island City, the spotlight has only brightened upon the region’s infrastructure and transportation challenges. The area’s subways, roads, bridges, tunnels, railroads, airports and waterways are all in need of vast amounts of dollars to keep up with the pace of growth and development. Which are the most important priorities? What is the status of proposed projects? How will we get there from here? Steven Charney, along with other top infrastructure leaders, convenes to discuss the chronic challenges at hand and present a vision for the way forward, and how private developers and construction firms might be part of the solution.
The Anchin Construction & Development Forum is a premium conference that brings together the Tri-state area’s senior development and construction executives to translate key challenges into profitable opportunities, as well as explore emerging trends influencing and disrupting the industry. Now in its fifth year, this event consistently gathers the region’s leading developers, contractors, architects and other industry professionals for a day of networking, idea sharing and deal-making.
