Urban Redevelopment: How the Eco-District Model Can Drive Economic Growth

Tuesday, Oct 15, 2013

Despite the increasing interest in climate change, green building, and sustainability, the redevelopment community continues to struggle with integrating environmentally sensitive features into the built environment. Stakeholders find it difficult to define and adopt what proves to be a complex and costly arena, let alone quantify and report on the effectiveness of sustainability metrics.

Case studies from around the world have shown that eco-districts reap economic and financial gains. In addition, they have the benefits of supporting a growing population density while maintaining quality of life, spreading the use of natural resources more efficiently, fostering healthy living, and providing grounds for innovation and evolution of cities.

What are the key elements of an eco-district that lends itself to economic growth? Can eco-districts be implemented in NYC? How can the various stakeholders, from developers to community organizations, work together to foster regenerative sustainable neighborhoods? How can these projects be incentivized as well as funded?

In partnership with Living City Block, it is our intent to convene working group meetings as a launchpad for the development of EcoDistricts in NYC. Professionals interested in joining these working groups and becoming involved with the project should register for the panel.

Moderator: Llewellyn Wells, Founder - Living City Block, Co-Founder - Urban Energy Systems Corporation;

Confirmed Panelists: Michelle Canizio, Chief of Sustainability Initiatives - NYCHA; Margarett Jolly, Distributed Generation Ombudsman - Con Edison; Tria Case, University Director of Sustainability - CUNY; Cameron Thomson, Sustainability Consultant - Arup

Date: October 15th, 6:00 - 8:00pm

Location: NYU Law School Vanderbilt Hall Room 214, 40 Washington Square South
