Tools to Unlock Housing Supply: Making Cities Nimble and Adaptable

March 28, 2023 10:30am – 12:00pm (GMT-07:00) Arizona Concurrent Session

Cities are living and breathing ecosystems, yet often operate with outdated zoning regulations and housing codes that make them unable to adapt when needed. This has been evident for a long time, but the pandemic radically changed how we live and work, creating a new set of opportunities and challenges. This panel will discuss innovations to streamline development to unlock housing supply rapidly, as well as the common pitfalls that prevent housing development from becoming more efficient. With a special focus on the opportunity for office-to-residential conversions, this panel will offer replicable solutions and lessons learned as communities rethink their valuable spaces.
