This session will discuss how with recent demographic trends pointing to a resurgence of urban places, suburbs are finding that the old rules no longer apply. Dublin is facing several challenges in this regard: reinventing its “legacy” office parks, as a way to position the city to harness the economic energy of the “innovation” economy and to answer the demand from residents and employers to increase transportation options. These trends were a catalyst for the planning projects and associated policy and code updates, linked together by mutual goals and supported by strategies for a multi-modal transportation system. Dublin has had success with its Bridge Street initiative to build a new, walkable and urban place. It is betting on similar success with its suburban office parks and mobility plan.
