DIALOG talks bigger picture planning and P3s at RailVolution

DIALOG principals Martin Nielsen and Antonio Gomez-Palacio are making the trip to Minnesota to share their transit design experiences Sept 21-24. Between the two they’ve touched some of the largest (and smallest) transportation projects in Canada, from Toronto’s Union Station to Vancouver’s Millennium Line. Check out the two sessions below or on the Railvolution web site.

Public-Private Partnerships: The P3 Experience

Public-private partnerships (P3s) are on the upswing. After a strong start with vertical building delivery in the US and many transit projects in Canada, the P3 model for transit seems to be here to stay. Upcoming projects in Baltimore and Denver are piquing interest across the US. Is P3 right for your project? How have recent projects fared? Listen as panel members explore recent applications, trends and benefits of the P3 delivery method. Learn how to assess your own project in terms of the P3 model. Hear how P3 is helping accomplish broader community development, sustainability and mobility goals throughout North America.

Beyond Mobility: Corridor Planning for the Bigger Picture

Transit can do more than move people and generate revenue. More and more, cities are investing in transit to transform their communities and deliver on more expansive city-building objectives. Traditional transit goals are expanding to address the promise of livable communities, environmental stewardship, economic development and improved public health. Hear how two cities — Seattle and Portland — are shaping development scale and character with transit investment. Both cities are using parcel-based, pro forma-based tools to quantify the potential impact of transit projects. Join us for an interactive discussion about the capabilities and limitations of these tools. Hear their stories and learn how to evaluate your own projects against a broader set of goals using technical and market-based analysis.
