TEANECK, NJ-Issues and topics related to government and the public sector continue to dominate the discussion in New Jersey commercial real estate circles, and they’re at the top of the agenda for the upcoming RealShare New Jersey conference. And while questions about the economy loom, as often as not they’re tied to public sector issues.

That’s because while the state of the economy might be problematic, the picture is further muddied by questions of New Jersey’s competitiveness with other states and whether state government is business-friendly enough. Combine that with questions of eminent domain, urban redevelopment and environmental issues, and the picture gets even muddier.

The sixth annual conference, slated to take place Oct. 4 at the Glenpointe Marriott here, is expected to draw more than 600 top-level real estate executives. The RealShare Conference Series is produced by Real Estate Media, publishers of GlobeSt.com Real Estate New Jersey and Real Estate Forum.

A power panel of six top executives will put all of those issues and more “on the table” in a Town Hall Meeting discussion to kick off the day’s program. On that panel will be Gil Medina of Cushman & Wakefield, Charles Klatskin of Lee & Klatskin, Ray Sohmer of CB Richard Ellis, Michael Alfieri of M. Alfieri Co., Peter Sudler of Sudler Cos. and Michael Fasano of Marcus & Millichap.

Another highlight of the day’s events will be “Inside the Real Estate Mind,” an annual feature. This year, Mitchell Hersh, president and CEO of Mack-Cali Realty Corp., will sit down with Michael Desiato, group publisher and editorial director of Real Estate Media for a one-on-one.

What about environmental issues? Attendees will find out more during a spirited “Fact or Fiction” give-and-take between noted environmentalist Jeff Tittel, executive director of the Sierra Club of New Jersey, and Joe Riggs, group president at K. Hovnanian, one of the country’s largest homebuilders.

In between, concurrent sessions will focus on everything from bankruptcy questions in mixed-use developments, to the state of the debt and equity capital markets, eminent domain and urban issues, and economic development. Panels discussing the state of the office and industrial markets are also on tap.

And former top public sector officials Jamie Fox and George Warrington, now with the consulting firm Warrington Fox Shuffler, will jointly provide the luncheon keynote address. The topic: the state of government in New Jersey and its impact on commercial real estate.

Finally, the day’s events will conclude with a special ceremony honoring the 2007 Broker All-Stars as selected by the editors of Real Estate New Jersey. Those being honored will also be featured in the October issue of the Real Estate Media publication.
