15-minute communities hold the promise of accelerating decarbonization, increasing housing affordability, reducing climate and health risks, and fostering social equity. This approach to city building lays a foundation for developing compact, mixed-use, and walkable communities that can increase real estate value, create co-benefits for joint use and co-location, and generate new resources to help invest in local communities.
The ULI Curtis Infrastructure Initiative created the Building 15-Minute Communities: A Leadership Guide to share actionable leadership strategies across public, private, and non-profit sectors to:
- Decarbonize metro regions with a network of 15-minute transit-oriented communities
- Diversify urban central business districts into affordable, live-in downtowns
- Humanize edge cities into heat proof, resilient, retirement, and child-friendly communities
- Densify suburban corridors into walkable, mixed-use innovation districts
- Transform suburban malls into transit and trail-oriented mixed-use communities
- Activate exurbs as working landscapes of agrihoods and nature-based solutions
Join this webinar for a robust conversation with global experts in infrastructure on how to leverage holistic infrastructure investment and real estate development strategies to support thriving 15-minute communities across six geographic typologies.
