March APA-CMS Event: Design that Draws

March 7, 2017

 

This joint program between the APA-IL Chicago Metro Section, the Municipal Design Review Network (MDRN), AIA-Chicago and CNU-IL will consider how urban design can help aging suburbs attract young professionals and families. Demographic trends indicate millennials will soon be seeking urban-like social and cultural amenities in the suburbs. Architectural and urban design considerations can enhance such opportunities. Panelists will discuss the demands of a younger demographic, while drawing upon regional case studies and current research on demographic change.

 

  • Emi Adachi, Vice President of Investment Research at Heitman, will provide an overview of demographic change in suburban communities and trends among millennials.

  • Ferhat Zerin, Principal at Ginko Planning & Design, will discuss her work on downtown redevelopment projects in communities such as Schaumburg, and how urban design projects can attract new residents.

  • Eileen Franz, the Assistant Planning & Zoning Administrator in Elmhurst, will share how their community has worked to attract millennials and young families through investments in their downtown.

 

Our distinguished speakers and panelists will also discuss factors such as affordability, access to transit and diversity as factors millennials consider as they look to the suburbs. After a brief presentation from each speaker, there will be a panel discussion with Q&A. See complete agenda below.
