Conversation with Deal Makers

Ultimate Skybox at DiamonView Tower - Cisterra Development

Matt Carlson, CBRE
Kris Michell, City of San Diego
Jason Wood, Cisterra

No matter what city you hail from, ‘doing the deal’ is the only way to get a project done. This interactive session will feature the people behind many of the signature projects in San Diego’s East Village. The program will take place in the Ultimate Skybox overlooking the San Diego Padres’ Petco Park, on the top floor of DiamondView Tower, which demands the highest-priced office rents in the region. The office and retail project was one of the first in East Village and helped spur interest and investment in the area. Ten years ago, urban development in this area was a big gamble. Visionaries of that era will discuss what made them take the development risk, how they used unique financing structures to build their projects, and how the gamble has paid off. From the nearly 360-degree view from the Tower’s deck, participants will have a visual narrative of the city’s most beautiful views and iconic projects and a glimpse into what’s next in the redevelopment of East Village.
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. This tour is not ADA accessible.
