Smart Math of Mixed-Use Development
With tighter budgets & environmental costs, US cities have accepted that the status quo of development will no longer work. When trying to convey that info using math, cities get lost in the numbers.
DCRP hosted a presentation by Joe Minicozzi, a highly-regarded and forward-thinking real estate consultant from Asheville. His talk, titled "The Smart Math of Mixed-Use Development", discussed the true costs and benefits behind our development patterns, while shedding insight on how we can best structure our built environment to maximize efficiency and create equitable, viable communities.
The event was held at the Koury Auditorium in the Kenan-Flagler Business School with a catered reception held afterwards that provided students an opportunity to discuss the lecture and network with audience members from throughout UNC, Chapel Hill, and the Triangle region. As with the Mitchell Silver lecture last year, this event occurred the evening before the department’s annual Open House, providing prospective students an opportunity to experience the innovative conversations taking place at DCRP.
