ULI Colorado: Webinar – The Future of Density

Friday, May 8th, 2020, 10:00am – 11:15am MDT

ULI’s best practices are based on principles of good urbanism, including compact, walkable neighborhoods and districts, development clustered near transit, robust retail, and vibrant public spaces.  The Covid-19 challenge has essentially suspended all these practices. But what will our urban world look like as we approach the “new normal?”  How will we adapt transit, co-working spaces and the workplace in general, cultural and sporting events, restaurants, farmers markets, multi-family living—places where people are encouraged to and enjoy being in close proximity?  What innovations might allow us all to return safely? How will the uses of buildings and public spaces shift? What are the economic implications? Join us for a stimulating, research-based peer into the near future.


John Desmond, Former EVP Downtown Environment for the Downtown Denver Partnership

Sara Jensen Carr, author of the forthcoming book The Topography of Wellness: Health and the American Urban Landscape

Local Panelists Include:

ULI Asia Pacific Webinar: Transit Oriented Development in a Post-Pandemic World (ULI paid subscription required)

In recent decades transit-oriented development (TOD) has become a global trend for cities, aligning transport infrastructure with development, capitalizing on the flows of people to create value as well as increasing urban livability and sustainability. The last months have seen a dramatic effect on public transport ridership, with potentially far-reaching ramifications for the finance and operation of operators, developers, landlords and occupiers of TODs as well as for the broader workings of our cities.

ULI convened an infrastructure developer, an investor, and planner to discuss the background, and current state and future of TOD in our cities, looking at the Asia Pacific and North America regions specifically. The speakers share their perspectives on the effects of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation today and thoughts on the future.



Transit Oriented Development Trends and Successes

May 19 – 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern – 1 Hour webinar

Get up to speed on the latest trends in TOD – the growing market share, development strategies, financing, and creating successful mixed-use projects.

Why Rent Control Doesn’t Work

As cities become ever-more expensive, politicians and housing advocates keep calling for rent control. Economists think that’s a terrible idea. They say it helps a small (albeit noisy) group of renters, but keeps overall rents artificially high by disincentivizing new construction. So what happens next?
