Where are we now? IC&I Market Update with 3 Brokers and an Assessor

In November 2019, the REIBC welcomed three industry brokers who provided a snapshot as to where the retail leasing, office and industrial markets were and what to expect moving forward. In addition to the broker input, BC Assessment also provided an overview of the impacts on assessed values for the 2020 Assessment Year while outlining key sales activity in the retail, office, industrial and multi-family markets.

Needless to say, we are in a very different environment today. Please join us for a follow-up session as the experts dive into where we are now, and how Covid has changed the landscape for IC&I properties.


  • Retail Expert: Raman Bayanzadeh, Klein Group of Companies
  • Office Expert: Perry Gorgounis, CBRE
  • Industrial Expert: Eugen Klein, RI, Klein Group of Companies
  • Assessment Expert: Keith MacLean-Talbot, RI, BC Assessment

The presentations will take place beginning at 4 and then we will have ½ hour of networking. Join us for this inaugural virtual networking event.

Ask a Planner: Lindsay Chase, MCIP, RPP, MCP
In the style of an Ask Me Anything session, this is an opportunity for you to ask a planner your burning questions about planning and land development. If you want to know what an Official Community Plan (OCP) does, ask away.  If you want to know about zoning, we can talk about that too.  What’s the difference between the two?  I’m glad you asked! Wondering about Development Permits, Development Variance Permits and the Board of Variance? Want to know what makes a great application? This session is for you!
