Bisnow is holding a Global Placemaking event where you can learn how your expertise can effectively be used to create long-term value as new projects emerge and old sites reposition.
Olympia, Wembley, Canada Water, White City, Brixton, International Quater and many other areas are undergoing huge regeneration projects, not only expanding the boundaries of the city center but having creative placemaking at the heart of their transformation. It is no secret that London's population will undergo enormous change over the coming years. Occupational changes, digitalization and an increasingly dense, expensive and busier London will draw the city's citizens and businesses to different pockets of the city.
As competition from foreign investments continues, a profitable regeneration project is no longer about size, or working and living anymore. Innovation, connectivity, improvement in the public realm and the ability to transform to a changing socio-economic landscape are key to longevity. But how do you get the mix right? What facilitates human interaction, a sense of belonging and community? And as we see large-scale projects and emerging destinations creating new places of innovation, how will traditional areas that can't reap the benefits of an entire district reposition their assets? Can the placemaking experience be brought to a single building?
