T24 – From Vision to Reality: Unlocking the Development Potential of Complex Urban Sites
Thursday, Feb. 25 • 3:30pm-4:30pm
Every city and community has sites or areas that are derelict, vacant or underutilized. These sites are typically located in key commercial areas with high walkability, access to schools, services, and transit. It is these derelict and vacant sites located in prime neighborhoods or waterfront districts that have the potential to be most transformative for cities. Carla Guerrera, Vice President, Planning & Community Development at Darwin Properties presents best practices and key lessons for the redevelopment of these complex urban sites.
