BOSTON, MA, October 31, 2019 — Richard Walsh, President & CEO of Walsh Brothers, Incorporated will join other industry executives for the Boston Student Housing & Higher Education Real Estate Summit hosted by Bisnow, one of the largest producers of commercial real estate news and events. Together with Thomas Glynn and Marika Reuling both of Harvard University, Patricia Fillppone, Executive Director of the UMass Building Authority and Jacob Higginbottom, Director of Higher Education for the SGA, Mr. Walsh will focus their discussion on “The Campus of Tomorrow.”

“It’s probably fair to say that Walsh Brothers has been working on a campus almost every day for the past 100 years,” said Walsh. “Leveraging our depth of experiences with the insights of today’s students whom we invite to participate in a “think tank” effort during planning and construction has given Walsh Brothers a unique view into the market, the needs of the end users and what a campus should look like in the future.”

Other topics scheduled for discussion during the Summit include:

  • Is private student housing a viable option for Boston given the available options?
  • Will universities resist co-living as a possible housing solution?
  • What major institutional investments are leading the way in student housing?
  • Will universities consider partnering with independent student housing developments?
