Contrasting ideas can create tension, but are necessary when it comes to successful development projects.
That is the theme for the next ULI Arizona main program, titled “Design and Development – Two Perspectives,” the first joint event with AIA Phoenix Metro.
The program is scheduled for June 3 at the Montelucia Resort, 4949 E. Lincoln Drive in Paradise Valley. Registration begins at 2:30 p.m. The program is from 3-5 p.m. with a networking reception to follow.
The industry wants to build healthy, financially sound, and sustainable environments for the generations to follow. But definitions of success and professional perspectives can vary. Is it possible not only to reconcile contrasting visions, but to find new opportunities for collaboration in the process? The answer is yes.
Confirmed speakers include moderator Wellington “Duke” Reiter, FAIA, Chair, ULI Arizona District Council; Martha Abbott, LEED AP bd +c, Principal and Studio Leader, SmithGroupJJR; Paul Blue, Director, Community and Economic Development Department, City of Phoenix; Community and Lifestyle Studio Director, Gensler; Andy Byrnes, Owner, The Construction Zone.
