Urban Land Institute, Ernst & Young to Release Findings From Infrastructure 2010: An Investment Imperative in Media-Only Webinar
Report Reviews Water Issues Confronting 14 U.S. Metropolitan Areas
Media-Only Webinar to Release Infrastructure 2010: An Investment Imperative
The Urban Land Institute and Ernst & Young are releasing Infrastructure 2010: An Investment Imperative. This latest report, the fourth in a series of infrastructure studies produced by the partnership, tackles two of the most challenging and timely but almost invisible issues faced by the global real estate industry today:
• Are we going to have the necessary infrastructure to provide enough clean water in coming years?
• Is our transportation infrastructure going to be strong enough to keep American cities globally competitive?
The research measures America's infrastructure investment in water and transportation systems against new systems being built overseas, and offers recommendations for changing real estate planning and development patterns to help conserve water and land, and reduce traffic congestion. The results can be unsettling.
The report examines the water issues and concerns of 14 metropolitan areas:
Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Seattle, San Francisco, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Washington, D.C.

An embargoed copy of Infrastructure 2010: An Investment Imperative will be made available to registered participants just prior to the session.
