FUTURE CITY SESSION 3 | Getting it Done: Implementing Innovative Design and Development Ideas

The development environment can be challenging in cities like Cleveland, especially when we’re trying to do something innovative, ambitious, or complicated. Please join us for a talk with Marc Norman, Director of UPSTATE at Syracuse University, who will discuss new models of inclusive economic development, real estate development financing, public/private partnerships, and strategies for implementing ideas that have real impact.

Marc Norman has dedicated his career to finding remedies to inequality and promoting economic development and social justice through innovative financial strategies paired with community development and design. As director of UPSTATE, a Center for Design Research and Real Estate at Syracuse University School of Architecture, he supports mechanisms that reduce the cost of housing, expand access to education and employment opportunities and promote health.

The Future City Sessions are an on-going explore of emerging ideas in urban design and city-making made possible by the support of The George Gund Foundation.
