Office Development Council (ODC)


The Office Development Council (ODC) is a diverse group of experienced developers, owners, investors, lenders, brokers and technical experts (architects, engineers, lawyers, etc.) that explores, in a collegial and confidential setting, current market conditions and trends, best practices, cutting edge innovation and lessons learned in the development and ownership of institutional office buildings.

The ODC strives to foster new development and re-development of sustainable buildings in markets and locations where growth is warranted and can be transformative in terms of creating improved workplace environments.  Our goal is to provide best-in-class council meeting experiences for our members, and to promote networking and business opportunities throughout the year.
