Speakers at a morning panel moderated by Ronan Remandaban, co-founder and chief executive officer of Liquideed, discussed how the need for “Last Mile” distribution centers had transformed the sector, especially in dense urban areas, and how developers and brokers should navigate this new landscape. But there were no easy answers.
