In March, the Business Record hosted four video roundtables, each on a different segment of real estate and development in Greater Des Moines: Office, retail, industrial and land. Senior Staff Writer Kent Darr then wrote summaries of each discussion and put together Q&A style stories for our brand new Annual Real Estate Magazine. The magazine was distributed at our April 20 CRE Trends and Issues Forum and inserted in the April 29 issue of the Business Record.

This Video roundtable focused on land and featured the following panelists.

- Jake Christensen, President, Christensen Development
- Phil Delafield, Community development director, City of Des Moines
- Chris Della Vedova, Principal and co-founder, Confluence Architects 
- Joe Pietruszynski, Vice president of land development, Hubbell Realty Co.
