1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Presenter: KC Conway, CCIM, CRE, MAI

The AdRu 2.0 webinar provides a blueprint for renovating suburban communities by applying a neighborhood approach to the economic transformation of  obsolete areas. AdRu 1.0 (Turning Blight Bright) was about understanding the conversion of individual assets in cities from something “blight-ed” to something “bright”. AdRu 2.0 (Making Bright Brighter) is about taking the property use trend beyond one-off properties associated with blight and applying it to entire neighborhoods beyond the urban core to make suburban areas even brighter than when first developed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the transformation of "Turning Blight Bright" to "Making Bright Brighter".
  • ESG - the "G" in ESG should be amended to GREENSPACE!  It is good "E" for the environment and good "S" - as it brings social diversity back to the neighborhoods.
  • AdRu is economically feasible and maximally productive for suburban communities.  It is what CRE professionals seek to identify - Highest & Best Use.
  • AdRu presents challenges to Property Management, specifically related to increased costs to operate, and manage adapted properties.
  • AdRu 2.0 is the solution for reconnecting neighborhoods separated by the 1956 Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956.
