What It's About:
Research continues to show that a growing segment of the population, regardless of age, is yearning for the more connected, vibrant lifestyle of urban living. They want to walk down the block for coffee or meet friends after work for a drink, easy-access to cultural centers and recreation and the option of taking mass transit to the office. This advanced session explores how builders might be able to capitalize on this “urbanization of the suburbs” and successfully integrate the features of urban living that consumers long for in suburban housing. From planning to architecture, attached to detached, retail and commercial, for sale and rental—the character of the suburbs continues to evolve and we’ll explore what all these opportunities can mean for you.
What You'll Learn:
Learn new design concepts for today's increasing density, production homes and target pricing.

Understand how to translate these concepts for a variety of regional locations and contexts.
