Start-ups and their role in Urban RegenerationStart-ups and their role in Urban Regeneration
The world's cities are constantly reinventing themselves. As 19th and 20th-century manufacturing moves away from city centres, what's to become of the premises it once inhabited?
High-tech start-ups are looking for real estate that's not only functional, but also well located close to the heart of the city, and full of character. Post-industrial buildings, if sensitively and intelligently refurbished, can form prestigious locations for new, growing businesses seeking headquarters with character. How can cities revitalise themselves by turning heritage buildings into hubs of IT activity? This event will be a chance to see one such development, ArtN, and to discuss the future of cities, based on the needs of tomorrow's tenants.
