PROJ_MGT 495: Chicago Lessons in Land Use

Quarter Offered

Fall : TBA 6:30-8pm ; Juliane Kelly


As one of the great global cities, Chicago serves as a prolific model when contemplating the importance of land use regulations and their imprint on development. Exploring Chicago’s legacy of urbanization, rebuilding, and reinvention along the way, this course examines the contributing factors and vital lessons gleaned from various efforts to shape the built environment. Chicago’s regulatory climate offers a meaningful glimpse into those approaches that can either facilitate or halt development. With the goal of advancing market-viable developments that foster land-sensitive solutions, we will examine and critique the forces that impact land use, whether they be policy, politics, land planning, financial incentives, bulk regulations, community groups or the average citizen.
