Reshaping Cities in a Post-Parking World: A Real Estate Development Perspective
1.5 CM / LU Pending
If shared and/or autonomous vehicle fleets come to dominate personal intra-city travel, some experts suggest that developers will no longer need to provide extensive parking in new housing, office, and retail developments anywhere in urban areas. Whereas other sessions may contemplate retrofitting existing buildings or changing parking policies, this session will focus on how real estate developers might respond to the new parking paradigm and how project-level changes may propagate to reshape urban form. A panel of experts, including real estate developers, will discuss potential changes to developments, how that will impact project feasibility, and how that might shift the spatial geography of cities. The discussion will help attendees build an initial understanding of how our post-parking development patterns might change and how cities might be reshaped over time.
