How can a focus on food within real estate projects translate into enhancements to health, environmental sustainability, and the bottom line?
Cultivating Development: Trends and Opportunities at the Intersection of Food and Real Estate explores the mutually beneficial relationship between food-based amenities—such as working farms, community gardens, food halls, restaurants, and grocery stores—and real estate. It highlights how the growing interest in and awareness of fresh, local food is spurring innovation in development projects.
ULI’s Center for Sustainability and its Building Healthy Places Initiative undertook this project to showcase how the real estate community is using innovative approaches to food in real estate projects that can translate into enhancements in health, sustainability, economic opportunity, food system security, community economic development, and real estate returns.
