Retail is evolving and therefore retail real estate is undergoing a concurrent transformation. Ecommerce is meeting bricks and mortar in innovative ways and experience is becoming the overarching theme in physical shopping centers. This discussion will focus on the retail revolution's creation of new challenges and opportunities for the overall industry with a deep dive into emerging retail trends in retailer format, technology, and how both retailers and developers are responding to meet consumer demands. 

18 Hour City Series is a creative problem-solving forum. The structure allows industry talent to engage with panelists to innovate around unique challenges and ideas. Our ULI Members are a diverse group of thought leaders. We are doers who design and solve for effective use of land and the built environment. Expert panelists will present contemporary thinking on a subject and together we will help form, create and sustain our 18 Hour City.

18 Hour Cities are experiencing:
  • above-average urban population growth
  • affordable cost of living
  • lower cost of doing business relative to “24 Hour” cities like Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Washington DC
The concept of the 18 Hour City is important because the label has proven to be a good indicator of growth potential. ULI, for example, has tracked the progress of cities it designates as 18 Hour, and the data is compelling. If a city has quantifiable success attracting Millennials with a solid and growing job base, yet is more affordable than the cities from which they are migrating, it is logical to believe that it will thrive.
