The Future of Business Districts

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 10:45 AM – 12:00 PM Convention Center, Room 502 Open to All Attendees
Concurrent Session

The days when high quality office space was enough to make a commercial business district attractive are a thing of a past. Today, to remain internationally competitive, business districts must respond to changes in the way we live, work and play, including demand for greater flexibility and a mixed use environment. Drawing on research by ULI Europe and EY that will be launched at the Fall Meeting, which assesses the attractiveness of 17 large business districts worldwide, this session will explore the strategies that cities and real estate industry are taking to adapt to this new climate.
