Placemaking Forum

Concurrent Session;Open to All Attendees
The real estate industry faces a pivotal moment as we face new norms brought forth by exceptional circumstances over the past few years. With radical disruptions to the built environment, and to the ways we live, work, and play, how do policymakers in our industry embrace the old and new when building (or rebuilding) strong, healthy cities? What are the indispensable approaches that define green and healthy communities? How do placekeeping and placemaking create more value—financially, socially and environmentally? How does digitalisation transform the ways we create places? The Placemaking Forum will bring together all stakeholders – policymakers, investors, developers, architects, and urban designers – to share insights and explore new and workable solutions for holding and revitalising the social fibre of communities for generations to come.
