Implementing district-scale ecological infrastructure continues to be a difficult puzzle in American cities where property owners, regulators, and market forces can determine the success or failure of a bold vision. Join Mithun’s Christian Runge at the ASLA Annual Meeting and Expo as he presents Realizing District Ecological Infrastructure: From Vision to Site Implementation in Cities with Brian Chilcott of Sasaki Associates and Christopher Streb of Biohabitats.

This session will examine the evolution of “Eco District” planning concepts and innovations, market and regulatory forces that are influencing implementation of ecological infrastructure and conceptual framework needed for this process. The discussion will feature creative approaches to phased site development in recent projects including State Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
