State of the Market: What does the post-pandemic commercial real estate market look like, and where will it go from here?
LAI Golden Gate is going virtual during the shelter-in-place! Please join us on Tuesday, May 12, from noon-1 pm, for our first virtual program: an insider look at the post-pandemic office and retail markets in San Francisco and Oakland.
