The WalkUP analysis is a unique study of the current and future development patterns in the Metroplex. It documents the start of the pendulum swinging back to “walkable urban” development that the market is demanding. In comparable markets, like metro Atlanta and Washington, DC, the price premiums generated by the pent-up demand for walkable urban places has been satisfied is being satisfied in redeveloping center cities. Suburbs such as Grapevine and Addison Circle are also developing urban centers. The skillsets, financial, infrastructure, construction and, most importantly, place management necessary to succeed in walkable urban development is fundamentally different than the development trends of the late 20th century, when the vast majority of the Metroplex was developed.

This event will welcome you to the future of development.
