Retail planning guru Robert Gibbs recently led a charrette in Traverse City, MI, aiming to remake 80 acres of land into a more viable, vibrant and connected place. Gibbs will be bringing his planning and charrette vision to CNU 19 and conducted an in-depth and fast paced 202 titled Retail Planning Principles for Cities & New Urban Commercial Centers.
The 202 will take place the afternoon of Wed., 06/03, from 2-5pm and qualifies for 3 AIA Sustainable Design (LU/HSW/SD) credits, as well as 3 AICP CM Credits. The session will focus on the required market demographics for various retailers, restaurants, and shopping center typologies that include convenience centers, neighborhood centers, power centers, regional malls, and lifestyle centers.
Discussions of trends and techniques for the integration of hotel, office and residential uses will also be presented through 20 case studies on diverse places such as Birkdale, Charleston, The Glen, Houston, Lake Forest, Madison, Middleton Hills, Santa Cruz, Rosemary Beach and Seaside.
