coffee & conversation | value of downtowns and city centers

July 11 @ 7:30 am - 8:45 am

No city or region can succeed without a strong downtown, the place where compactness and density bring people, capital, and ideas into the kind of proximity that builds economies, opportunity, and identity. While downtown mpls occupies a small area—3.5 square miles or 6% of the city’s total land area—it contains a large share of the city’s most valuable assets.

Join us for a review of the recently released 2018 IDA report: The Value of U.S. Downtowns and Center Cities — Minneapolis. Informed by experts and downtown leaders from around the country, this analysis encompasses more than 100 key data points and evaluates downtown mpls on five interrelated principles — economy, inclusion, vibrancy, identity, and resilience. You’ll hear from & talk with:

  • Ben Shardlow, director of urban design, Mpls Downtown Improvement District
  • Beth Elliott, senior urban planner and planning group leader, Stantec
  • Amanda Taylor, director of research, Greater MSP
