Later this month, we will launch a new ticketing system. We ask that you register for each event you're planning to attend through the link in the Admission section below. This will help us keep you informed of any changes and better tailor our schedules and offerings.
If cities are to be home to healthy downtowns, it is imperative to understand why some succeed, others are resurging after temporary contractions and still others have been continually declining for decades. The new book The Heart of the City diagnoses why places like Houston continue to thrive while Detroit and St. Louis stumble and offers a plan for housing, business and attractions that improves mobility and services. Come hear the steps necessary to improve our cities’ crucial urban cores. Co-presented by Island Press.
