GALLOWAY Colin, MACCLEERY Rachel, HAMMERSCHMIDT Sara, Infrastructure 2014. Shaping the Competitive City, Urban Land Institute, 2014.
In a global marketplace, how do real estate developers and investors who could put their money nearly anywhere think about infrastructure? And how do city leaders use infrastructure to position their cities – relative to other cities regionally, nationally, and internationally – for real estate investment and economic development? This report, based on a survey conducted in January 2014 of real estate and public leaders from around the world, explores the role that infrastructure plays in shaping the future of cities and metropolitan areas.
