All across the world, real estate developers, urban planners and city officials are realizing the importance of  developing neighborhoods that cater to the creative class and create a sense of place and purpose. In an increasingly multifaceted world that demands complex problem solving, professionals across all sectors must be able to adapt nimbly and create new ideas to answer tomorrow’s questions. This reality has given rise to the creative class, which will help power the world’s future growth.  
To accommodate this group of citizens, cities and real estate developers are developing real estate projects and neighborhoods that are injected with creativity and/or cater to more artistically-minded individuals. These efforts often are opportunities to repurpose previously underutilized or industrial areas, such as Wynwood in Miami, River North in Denver or EaDo and First Ward in Houston. Other times, it’s a re-imagination of an existing commercial business district, such as Downtown Los Angeles or the BeltLine in Atlanta. Developers, similarly, have realized the value of catering to the creative class by infusing walkability, creative placemaking, captivating retail and unique branding into their projects.
Join our panelists as they discuss how creativity influences the urban environment, and why it’s no longer
an option, but rather a requirement, for cities and real estate developments to
be successful.
