2022 South Florida Redevelopment Conference

On Thursday, February 17th, Bilzin Sumberg will host an invite-only event, The South Florida Redevelopment Conference: Successful Strategies, Untapped Opportunities.

This exclusive conference will highlight emerging real estate investment and development trends in South Florida. Topics will include successful investment strategies and unique development opportunities in South Florida, accredited investor crowdfunding, new bonus incentives for specialized housing, nuances in Florida construction defect laws, and the challenges and benefits of expanding your portfolio in the region.

The event will include a variety of panel discussions including “Surveying the Local Landscape: Prevention and Mitigation Strategies for Construction Defects.”

Following a brief review of Florida’s Construction Defect Statute (Chapter 558), this session will address the most common construction defects observed in today’s development market. Seasoned practitioners from the business, engineering, and legal sides will then discuss the effectiveness of different strategies in mitigating losses. Panelists Vladimir Markoski, Principal at m2e Consulting Engineers, and Felix X. Rodriguez, Construction Partner at #BilzinSumberg, will share insights on how to avoid costly disputes related to construction defects.


Developers looking for new opportunities, as well as engineers, architects, planners, and government officials and staff engaged in real estate development and procurement in South Florida.
