BOND Multi 2021

America's Leading Multifamily Architects Forum

October 14-17, 2021

Arizona, USA


BOND Multi brings together America’s Top Multifamily Architects, Developers and Vendors in one place for 4 days and 3 nights.

The experience centres around a series of one-to-one business meetings between architects and vendors, that each have selected ahead of time.

For suppliers, it’s the best way to get your products into the right hands at the nation’s leading A&D firms.

For architects, the value lies in re-connecting with peers and discovering the best solutions to your design challenges from the experts who will be your lifeline.

Top notch. Hands down the best venue for getting product information into the right hands at an architectural firm.

Seminar - Attracting and Retaining Ambitious Design Professionals

Casius Pealer | Director, Master of Sustainable Real Estate Development, Tulane University

Read More Read Less


In 2011, the first baby boomers started retiring and millennials surpassed baby boomers as the largest demographic in U.S. history. That same year also marked the first time that more than half of the children born were racial minorities, according to the Census Bureau. These and other macro demographic trends have impacted housing design and community amenities needed to attract young individuals and families to live. But they also impact the qualities companies need to attract the best and most ambitious young professionals to work. This presentation will address how the best companies are attracting and retaining the best talent, specifically in the design and development industries.


Casius Pealer is Director of Tulane University’s Master of Sustainable Real Estate Development (MSRED) program and a Favrot Professor of Practice in the School of Architecture. Trained as an architect and a real estate attorney, Casius has over 20 years of community and economic development experience, including in private practice, local government, and the nonprofit sector. Prior to joining the faculty at Tulane, Casius served as the first Director of Affordable Housing at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), as Assistant General Counsel for Real Estate at the District of Columbia Housing Authority (DCHA), and as a consultant on multifamily housing and the impact of design and construction on health outcomes, energy use, water use, and community access.

In addition to being a regular speaker at professional conferences nationally, Casius is a former Chair of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Housing Committee and the current Vice Chair of Next City, a nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire social, economic and environmental change in cities through journalism and events around the world. He has been published in the ABA Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development Law, the AIA Journal of Architecture, and Affordable Housing Finance Magazine.

Casius is licensed to practice law in New York State and Washington, DC, and is a LEED Accredited Professional. A native of Central Florida, Casius holds a J.D. cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School, and a Master of Architecture from the Tulane School of Architecture.

Eisenberg will then discuss labor markets and wage growth, stock market performance, household formation, rising wealth and small business and consumer confidence, and of course inflation and the likely path of interest rates in 2022 as these variables are critical for real estate.     

Eisenberg will then focus his attention on real estate including multifamily, commercial and industrial property, supply chain issues, the work from home phenomenon, and touch on global warming and green design and global economic growth.  He will close by looking at current economic conditions across all 50 states.
