THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14
9:00 am – 4:30 pm UrbanPlan Workshop
Through a one-day workshop, public officials work as competing development teams to respond to a hypothetical request for proposal (RFP) for the redevelopment of a site in the fictitious town of Yorktown. Teams work together, using blocks to represent different building types and a financial analysis tool, to create a feasible proposal that meets the RFP’s objectives, the community’s interests, and the investor’s bottom line. ULI members serve as facilitators challenging the conceptual proposal, act as a selection committee to review the final proposals, and present a case study to spur discussion and analysis.
