SPUR Business Breakfast Series

What: SPUR Business Breakfast
Topic: The End of Real Estate Development As We Know It
Speaker: William Murray, Co-Founder, Wordsearch Place
The world is changing rapidly, and with it our expectations of how places function, of whom they are for and why we spend time in them. Traditional development and design practices are organized to deliver bricks and mortar, not places, experiences, or customer-focused products. As the world's wants and needs change and as increasing density and height become inevitable, we need to think ever-more carefully about what sort of places, communities, and cities we need to make.
This talk challenges the current practice of development and suggests an alternative proposition that will help to make future developments more authentic and successful.
