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.

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?
