NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION! ULI Presents: The Case for Open Space An important conversation on the role of parks and open space shaping the future of real estate. (Printable Flyer HERE)
Colorado’s population has nearly doubled since 1993, and Denver may grow by another 250,000 by 2040. From Central Park to City Park, our best urban developments have already been shaped by great parks and greenways. With rising land costs, our best strategy today may be to reclaim paved areas and worn-out industrial lands.
This program looks at the most innovative efforts to plan, design, and pay for new parks, while discussing how they will shape the next generation of development.
“Parks and open spaces are essential for the creation of vibrant communities and successful projects. As practitioners and investors, we may well realize this: but how can we identify specific opportunities to incorporate various types of open spaces into our projects? How can we better understand both the health benefits and the return on investment? Who should build them? Who should maintain them?” (from ULI’s Case for Open Space Report).
Keynote Speaker: James F. Lima, President, James Lima Planning + Development
