The suburbs have been “a critical focus for ULI since our founding,” but have suffered from a lack of definition, said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center for Housing.
Due to changing demographics, innovations in land use, building and design, and evolving definitions of ‘livability’, Nashville is seeing exciting examples of ‘desification’ outside the core. This trend demonstrates a ‘new way of development’ in suburban communities and urban neighborhoods towards more compact and mixed-use.

‘Contagious density’ tends to result in more creative spaces and places, both impacting and impacted by a new infrastructure, opportunities for walk- and bike-ability and trail-oriented and transit-oriented development, creative water management systems, increased chances for social equity, healthfulness and engagement…and more.

Learn how single-use office parks, fading shopping malls and sleepy sprawling suburbs are waking up into a lively version of ‘neighborhood’, as we feature local experts from

Gresham, Smith & Partners,
D9 Development,
Southern Land Company
and others

to discuss opportunities, challenges and projects in Franklin, Green Hills, the Nations and MORE!
