CREATING A 2030 DISTRICT IN SAN FRANCISCO: A Conversation with Bay Area Developers (free) (2 HSWs)
Tuesday, October 8, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
With the creation of a San Francisco 2030 District gaining momentum, AIASF’s Committee on the Environment is hosting a dynamic conversation with San Francisco developers regarding their current views and approaches to sustainable development; in the context of their financial goals and how creating healthier, more sustainable environments might increase the quality and desirability of their properties and enhance their returns.
We will discuss the ideas and benefits of creating a 2030 District in the context of improving the quality of a property’s surrounding environment. We will also discuss challenges (financial, legislative, etc.) that may impede the implementation of more sustainable approaches. The San Francisco 2030 District concept will be introduced; we will examine how the ideas within that paradigm could help remove obstacles to both greater sustainability and profit; and address owners/developers questions and concerns with the concept.
Can we as a community, with a broad cross-section of stakeholders represented, bring about an enhanced quality of life for San Franciscans at large while generating attractive returns for owners and developers?
