Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the last 20 years Miami has undergone a renaissance in lifestyle and the arts, once again becoming one of the nation’s hottest tourism destinations and real estate investment opportunities. Like New York, San Francisco, and other urban meccas, the rising cost of housing has become a serious challenge for the local workforce who face high rents and high rates of foreclosure after the crash of 2008. The demand for housing has spurred redevelopment efforts in urban core low-income neighborhoods and community development practitioners are using national models and best practices to ensure that the benefits of development accrue to neighborhood residents. The University of Miami and Florida International University, the two largest research institutions in the region, have begun a collaboration to conduct problem solving research and provide thought leadership to meet the region’s housing needs. This session will present work done by the universities and local practitioners to address housing and urban challenges in Miami-Dade County and build collaborations for place-based change.
