Urban Redevelopment: Building Stronger Communities

Spotlighting community experiences, waterfront redevelopment/resilience, and innovative financing for equitable change in New York, NY.


Join the Center for Creative Land Recycling on November 7th in Brooklyn, NY for “Urban Redevelopment: Building Stronger Communities,” where we'll build on the understanding that cities are best molded through redevelopment that benefits all. Community leaders will share what they have learned and achieved through their redevelopment projects, and delve into how the beneficial reuse of properties can support social justice, economic growth, climate resilience, and stronger communities. Experts from the public and private sectors will discuss today’s leading topics including the recently enacted historic Climate bill, urban waterway development, and tailor-made strategies for financing your redevelopment project. The information and connections you’ll make will position you ahead of the curve in a rapidly evolving industry. Join us for a reception immediately following the conference at the Kimoto Lounge where you can partake in drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and Brooklyn's breathtaking skyline.
