Pankow at Bisnow
On Monday, November 17, Oakland Mayor-elect Libby Schaaf, joined by the city's top developers, explained why the stars are aligning--and what's still a little off center--at Bisnow's 450-person event at the Marriott City Center.
In this synopsis from Bisnow’s newsletter, Scott introduced Pankow’s BHAG to “Flip the Curve” and how we plan to do that. “Pankow's first project was in Oakland in 1963. Today SVP Scott Anderson sees more investment in current stock, extending the life of buildings. He'd love to see high-rises get built. He quotes a study that says the construction industry is the only one since the industrial revolution that's declined in productivity.
We need to innovate to eliminate waste and drive value back to the end user. Its precast facility in Central Valley gets building components faster and at a higher level of quality, reducing on-site labor. One of Pankow's newest Oakland projects is a charter school with affordable housing developer Bridge Housing.”
