What Will Industrial Development Look Like Post-COVID-19

Thursday, April 1 | 2-2:45 p.m. ET

Commerce had begun to change before the outbreak of COVID-19, as seen in e-commerce’s exponential trajectory, demand for more immediate goods, and the rise of urban industrial development to fulfill last mile needs. The unknowns of COVID-19 have accelerated that change to a tipping point at which the structures of commerce, and the development that supports it, may be altered for good. What will new commerce look like and how will industrial development respond to support it?

KSS Architects Partner Ed Klimek, AIA, NCARB, will discuss his perspective on development that will bring the most value in a post-COVID-19 world. Ed will explore the future of industrial development using the lens of Amazon — a company that had already set change in motion, and the one company that may have grown the most as result of demand driven by the impact of COVID-19.
