Extreme Heat and Real Estate
We were joined by Katharine Burgess, Vice President of Urban Resilience and Elizabeth Foster, Manager of Urban Resilience at the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and Alex Ramirez, Office Director and Associate at Design Workshop for our latest Extreme Heat Network webinar. Our presenters discussed how private and public sector real estate leaders are mitigating and adapting to extreme heat. ULI shared key takeaways from a 2019 report on this topic, and Design Workshop presented a case study of their award-winning Bagby Street reconstruction project in Houston, Texas where mitigating temperatures was a guiding consideration.
Several Urban Land Institute resources mentioned throughout the presentation:
- Scorched: Extreme Heat and Real Estate report
- Developing Urban Resilience case studies
