The Economics of Mixed Use
A new Opportunity for Downtown Development
Wednesday, February 2, 2005
$10.00 fee payable at door
NO RSVP REQUIRED
Noted real estate economist DENISE CONLEY will be speaking at �The Forum at Redwood City: A Continuing Conversation on City Design� on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2005, from 6:00 - 7:45pm! Don�t miss this exciting discussion on The Economics of Mixed Use � A New Opportunity for Downtown Development.
Ms. Conley will address the �Return to Downtown,� where changing household composition and a strong interest in a more urban lifestyle are creating new economic opportunities for both residential and commercial development within historic downtowns. She will discuss the emergence of market sectors that prefer downtown living and explore what this means for our existing town centers.
Shifting demographics and rising home prices and worsening commutes are making the traditional suburban single family home a less acceptable choice. There is a rising demand for in town housing choices and a growing acceptance of urban density.
Please join us for a provocative presentation on the strengthening market for mixed use and higher density products and the new opportunity it creates for downtown offices, shops and residential uses.
Attendees of this session will also get a special treat from the owners of the Little Fox Theatre! Don�t miss out!
