    The 18 Hour City Series explores the topics facing Greater Cincinnati as it grows opportunities and delivers choice lifestyles to its increasingly diverse population.

    On September 10, ULI Cincinnati will present the fifth of the year's sessions, Creating Equity Through a New Approach to Land Assemblage and Redevelopment in Silverton.

    This 18 Hour City session will explore a New Urbanist, mixed-use redevelopment on a six-acre site within Silverton’s central business district. This innovative project is integrating a land readjustment (LR) strategy structured within a community land trust (CLT) model, enabling existing property owners to maintain permanent ownership of the land in the new development. The model is intended to strengthen existing community members economically and avoid the downsides of gentrification while still providing market-based opportunities to attract developers. The feasibility study will examine the benefits of the LR/CLT approach, assess current sentiment in the community regarding redevelopment, provide recommendations for the new urban and architectural design and provide a preliminary financial analysis. The New Model of First Suburban Revitalization project will not only continue the momentum within Silverton but promises to serve as a proof of concept for other inner-ring suburban communities for sustainable and equitable redevelopment.

    Our 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.
