ULI’s Fall Meeting in Chicago, Illinois last week featured a good deal of Building Healthy Places programming, with dynamic panels and speakers that focused on what it takes to make healthy places happen, the future of retail and office, and emerging opportunities for doing well and good. Read highlights and tweets from some of the sessions.

Making Healthy Places Happen

This Thursday morning session featured Nichols Prize winners Peter Calthorpe, founder and President of Calthorpe Associates, Bart Harvey, former Chairman of Enterprise Community Partners, and J. Ronald Terwilliger, Chairman Emeritus of Trammell Crow Residential, in a panel moderated by Marilyn Jordan Taylor, Dean and Paley Professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design.

The thought-provoking discussion focused on health factors and urban form at various scales: the economy, the environment, communities, and individuals. The panel jumped quickly to the need to address challenges in low income neighborhoods, including physical security and safety, as well as the critical challenge of addressing the United States’ housing deficit and providing stable, healthy, and affordable housing for all.

Building Healthy Places: New Opportunities for Doing Well and Good

This afternoon session, which capped off Thursday’s Building Healthy Places track, featured voices from ULI’s leadership. Moderated by Melinda Masson, Chief Executive Officer at Masson Investments, and ULI’s Ed McMahon, the panel featured Richard Albrecht, Principal at Lattice Properties, Colleen Carey, President of The Cornerstone Group, Todd Mansfield, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crescent Communities, and Anne Warhover, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Colorado Health Foundation.

The panelists discussed the history of integrating health into development, with Mansfield emphasizing that master planned communities like Celebration have always had health as a core consideration. Warhover noted that 90% an individual’s health was determined by factors other than health care, and Carey and the others discussed how they are thinking about health in the projects they’re developing today.
