Carving the big apple: Carl Weisbrod’s New York

We were delighted to welcome Carl Weisbrod in an exclusive private roundtable where he talked about his experiences in planning and regenerating New York City

Event starts at 11am on 12 June 2017 at London

In the week of his talk at the London Real Estate Conference, Centre for Cities was delighted to host an intimate roundtable with Chairman of the New York City Planning Commission, Carl Weisbrod.

This event was an exclusive opportunity for invited guests to hear about Weisbrod’s 35 years’ experience transforming New York’s neighbourhoods in an intimate setting. He talked about his work with Mayors De Blasio, Bloomberg and Dinkins as well as his time working in private sector development. His successes include transforming Times Square in to the commercial hub we see today, as well as regenerating Hudson Park and leading the post-9/11 recovery.  He has also had a frontline role in addressing the problems caused by New York City’s unaffordable housing market.
