Boutique developers are small and nimble enough to push boundaries in ways that larger developers can’t, and as a result, they are playing an integral role in pioneering innovation in new development. Modular housing and technology implementation like automated parking were some of the examples that experts on the Mixed-Use Panel: Successful Designs for Live/Work/Play discussion at RealShare Apartments gave last week. The panel discussion was led by moderator Adam Artunian, VP at John Burns Real Estate Consulting; Daniel Gehman, studio director at Humphreys & Partners, Architects; and Simon Aftalion, development director at Markwood Enterprises.
