Concurrent Session #6: Radical Reinvention: Transforming Key Urban Properties into Iconic Destinations

Friday, June 14, 2019 10:35 AM – 11:35 AM
Concurrent Session

Across the state, rethinking prime properties in our urban core offers the potential for truly transformational projects. Redevelopment of these sites often involves mitigating issues such as environmental impacts from prior use, rethinking previously successful developments that are no longer relevant and additional challenges inherent in redevelopment and adaptive reuse.

However, with the correct planning, partnerships and foresight; these sites can be transformed into iconic destinations. This session will focus on three case studies where redevelopment of distressed properties has been transformative for each community – Coco Walk in Coconut Grove, Depot Park in Gainesville and Armature Works in Tampa.
