ULI NT: The Future of TOD
May 22, 2018 | 7:00 – 9:00 AM
at the City Club of Fort Worth
Last month, we heard from Chris Leinberger of George Washington University about the importance of walkability in city planning and development. A significant contribution to the walkability of any city is how areas within the city are connected.
Enter the Transit-Oriented Development. TODs include a mix of commercial, residential, office, and entertainment centered around or located near a transit station.
Transit enhances the overall economic efficiency and equity of a city, and building Transit-Oriented Development helps to capture these economic benefits efficiently. But, with emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, are TODs still applicable to our city’s future? If they are, What is the best way to harness and implement these development tools, and how do they work in North Texas?
Identifying TOD Best Practices is the best way to encourage smart, sustainable growth and development. We invite members of the Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth, the Tarrant Transit Alliance, the Urban Land Institute, and those interested in city planning and development join us on May 22nd for this unique opportunity to learn from the experts!
