FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Congress for the New Urbanism and Downtown Colorado, Inc. Present
Urban Redevelopment: A Guide for Small Developers
DENVER – September 15, 2017 Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) is pleased to announce it will be partnering with the Congress for the New Urbanism Colorado (CNU) to present Eric Kronberg of KronbergWall Architects as he shares urban redevelopment tools. CNU Colorado and DCI will showcase a roadmap to help folks work through building code hurdles for a typical, two-story main street type building. Eric will also share a companion presentation to provide an honest, in depth look at ADA requirements for renovations to existing buildings.
The event features our speaker Eric Kronberg, a principle architect at KronbergWall Architects. Eric understands the challenges of attempting to renovate a building built 50-100 years ago. He has developed some tools to overcome a range of zoning and financing obstacles only to get bogged down by building code and ADA requirements intended for new construction. Eric is excited to share some thoughts and expand the conversation on what to expect and how to best get through many of these issues. Eric graduated from the Tulane School of Architecture in New Orleans. Since then, he has worked in Louisiana, Florida, and Georgia.
About Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) Colorado
The Congress for the New Urbanism, CNU, views disinvestment in central cities, the spread of placeless sprawl, increasing separation by race and income, environmental deterioration, loss of agricultural lands and wilderness, and the erosion of society’s built heritage as one interrelated community-building challenge. In response, CNU promotes walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development as an environmentally, socially and economically responsible solution to the challenges of community building. CNU engages our multidisciplinary members in reforming industry practice. CNU Colorado is the statewide chapter of CNU.
