Redevelopment Forum

March 10, 2017

Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown New Brunswick, N.J.

New Jersey Future’s annual Redevelopment Forum is our biggest event of the year, attracting more than 500 local and state officials, citizen activists, development professionals, architects, attorneys, planners, business leaders and students. Redevelopment allows us to re-use infrastructure, take advantage of historically strategic locations, maintain and improve our communities and preserve our remaining open spaces. It is clear that redevelopment, already at the heart of many of the opportunities available today, will play an even more vital role in the future.

By bringing together leaders in both government and the private sector who are working tirelessly to create sustainable redevelopment solutions to New Jersey’s problems, we can share innovative ideas, learn best practices, and make our state a better place for tomorrow. Our comprehensive workshops and panels feature impressive speakers with real world redevelopment experience.

 

Ben Lee, president of the NJ AIA, will be a speaker at the conference at the following session:

Designing Public Spaces that Work:

Learn how public data and metrics can be used as a driver for designing great – and well used! – public spaces. Hear about the techniques that design professionals are using to enhance the health and well-being of individuals across the state and how community input and ideas can spur the development of creative placemaking projects that improve quality of life and revitalize public spaces.  at the March 10 redevelopment.
