2019 Study Tour: Dallas, TX

October 2 - 4

Downtown Dallas is experiencing an urban renaissance that's fueling economic and population growth. Major public and private investments have made it an attractive destination for a diverse makeup of industries. Bold investments have yielded big results.

The Arts District has aggressively expanded over the last decade to include nine major institutes. And, neighborhoods like Uptown have increased in population by 66% since 2010. What's the secret to Downtown Dallas' recent success, and what were/are the challenges it faces? Save the date, get a pair of boots, and prepare to collect lessons learned. We're going to Dallas!
