Across the region, the last decade has seen the delivery of new, large-scale, mixed-use developments that are capitalizing on amenities and experiences beyond the traditional bricks and mortar retail experience. These new neighborhoods are tasked with creating an identity and sense of place at their inception. Developing a new neighborhood or destination delivered at once allows for a creative mix of branding, land uses, and leasing strategies with unique challenges and opportunities that are different from an incremental approach to neighborhood growth and change.
Please join ULI Washington’s Young Leaders Group and Placemaking Initiative Council for an informative panel
into what it takes to create, plan, design, develop, and manage these brand new neighborhoods. This panel will discuss the impacts of the emergence of large, destination-oriented development and how to create and market a brand for a large-scale development that are authentic and unique.

This event is being co-hosted by the ULI Washington Placemaking Initiative Council.
