Join the annual Winter Meeting of the Urban Land Institute (“ULI”) China Mainland in Shanghai on December 13th and 14th. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Regeneration of Buildings and City Blocks”. The meeting will focus on two types of regeneration.

A) Existing building repositioning and renovation: i.e., repositioning, change of use, change of exterior façade, change of interior layout, and upgrade of building infrastructure. The main targets would be conversion and renovation of existing industrial buildings, shopping malls and office buildings, plus historical buildings.

B) Repositioning and regeneration of buildings within a city block, or a few blocks: i.e., renovation of existing buildings, addition of new infill buildings, change of usage and building density, and also improvement of the public realm within the renovation sites.

The program in the December 13th conference includes the following sessions:

1) Building and city block regeneration
2) Regeneration of shopping centers
3) Technical challenges and solutions
4) Emerging Trends in Real Estate report announcement and discussion by investors and developers
5) Entrepreneurs’ talk

Immediately following the conference, there will be a reception for all participants and a dinner for Full Members.

On the following day, we will also have a tour of several regeneration projects in the afternoon and a YLG reception in the evening.
