The Evolving Urban Core

Urban cores across the United States are in a period of rapid change. Emerging technologies like autonomous vehicles, ride-hailing platforms and the concept of mobility as a service are drastically changing how our urban cores will evolve and prosper. Shifting demographics and evolving lifestyle preferences are requiring cities to reprioritize their investments and repurpose their infrastructure to attract and retain talent to a level that will adequately meet workforce needs.
