In this presentation, Andrew will explain what makes urban land valuable and how our built-environment affects property values. He'll introduce the Net Attraction Framework, a model that identifies patterns in the relationship between design and value. Andrew will also compare the return on investment on public projects that emphasize quality of design versus projects that don't.
