What's next for america's
fastest growing places?

The pandemic has paused city life, but it won’t stop their growth. In fact, there are signs that growth in many American cities will accelerate as families relocate to opportunity. 

The next edition of CityAge virtual will look at how to plan, design and build commercial real estate, infrastructure and housing in North America’s fastest growing cities during and after the pandemic.

We’ll look at  the latest data on where growth is happening and how to build fast-growing cities for the new normal.

Themes of Discussion:

■ The pandemic’s  impact  on future urban population and economic growth rates. A trend analysis of where  growth will happen — downtown or in  the suburbs. 

■  Density Redefined? We’ll look at how density must  be anchored in new  design approaches for developers and people.

■  How the pandemic is impacting the thinking of America’s leading urban planners on  transit oriented development. Will people still embrace the bus?

■  A look at consumer demand shifts in urban development from the pandemic. For example, will we see more townhomes and fewer condos and elevators?

■   Why smart, mixed-use, transit oriented development is still a major economic advantage to cities.
