Your Next Agrihood Project Concurrent Session

Agrihoods are residential or mixed-use developments built with a working farm or garden as a focus. In master-planned communities, farms are replacing golf courses as a healthier and more sustainable amenity that can support an attractive return on investment. At this session, learn about ULI’s new report Agrihoods: Cultivating Best Practices and hear strategies for agrihood development from leading practitioners.

What Tenants Want, and What They’re Willing to Pay For 
2:30 – 3:30 PM
Music City Center, 208AB

In the age of viral-ready office perks such as treadmill desks, kombucha on tap, and dog-friendly workplaces, it’s sometimes hard to determine what tenants are really (and realistically) requesting. With the wide variety of tenant amenities on the market, how do developers make sure they’re including the proper features to ensure tenant demand and high occupancy? How do they avoid bubble trends and select long-term wins for their buildings? One answer: ensuring that all occupants have ample access to natural daylight, enjoy high indoor air quality, and have access to natural or city-scape views from their workspaces.
