Event Details

SPIRE's first partnership with ULI San Francisco's Young Leaders Group and Silicon Valley Program Committee to co-host a Fireside Chat with SREC member Steve Dostart (MBA '90), President and Founder of Dostart Development Company was a smashing success!

The Fireside Chat was an exclusive opportunity to hear from Steve in an intimate setting as he recounted his early days with Mozart Development Company and how he became partner, and provided sage advice for those just beginning their real estate careers. Dostart also recounted the rewards and challenges in navigating the development process for Dostart Development's 601 Marshall, where the Fireside Chat was held.

Attendees enjoy amazing view from the top floor terrace 601 Marshall, a ±150,000 SF Class A+ office development in downtown Redwood City, 75% of which is leased to Goodwin Procter LLP; the building boasts expansive views of the coastal mountains.

SPIRE and ULI would like to thank both Steve Dostart and Goodwin Procter for making this event possible.
