New Life for Dead Malls: Converting Greyfields to Mixed-Use Town Centers

Description: 

6/2/06 4:00pm-5:00pm

While greyfield malls can act as a blight on a community, they also have great potential to be repositioned as valuable mixed-use developments. This session will build on CNU's greyfields study, examining the opportunities and challenges of redeveloping these unique sites. Learn how other projects have dealt with design, financing, entitlements, and public process to bring urban character and community to dying retail properties, increasing property values and bringing new life and business to the site.

Presented by: Charles Bohl, Daniel Parolek, Lee Sobel, Douglas Storrs
