Aging Malls & Office Parks Transformation Work Group

This work group is designed for local planning, housing and economic development staff interested in learning about the challenges and opportunities involved in transforming aging malls and office parks into neighborhoods that are affordable to households across the income spectrum.

The work group includes six workshops focused on planning, housing and implementation. Each session includes practical takeaway information, resources and tools that local staff can readily integrate into their work.

Materials and recordings will be available after each session. View the Transforming Aging Malls and Office Parks Work Group Curriculum.
