Because the Georgia and South Carolina coasts are among the fastest growing areas in the United States, this special ULI program will focus on the next big ideas in regional coastal development. This program will examine environmentally sensitive development, sustainability, nautical connectivity, consumer preferences and buyer demographics. Attendees will learn how these trends influence how developers predict market direction and future development, as well as what leading developers are doing to differentiate their projects and help make them a success.
The panelists will present an overview of regional projects, followed by a question and answer period. Christian Sottile of Sottile & Sottile, a Savannah College of Art and Design professor, architect, and urban designer, will address “Lessons Learned in Savannah.” James Langford, project executive of Linger Longer Communities, will feature the Jekyll Island revitalization. Tommy Linstroth of Melaver, Inc. will speak on “Sustainable Fellwood - Redefining Green Affordable Housing”. Chip Drury, Principle of Tidewater Plantations Development Company, LLC will talk about the Laurel Island Project. The panel will be moderated by Seth Weissman, Esq., of Weissman, Nowack, Curry & Wilco, P.C.
Networking begins at 5:00 p.m. with appetizers and beverages. The program begins at 6:00 pm. Reservations are required for this event. The book, Ten Principles of Coastal Development, is included with registration. ULI members and non-members are welcome.
