Urban Rehabilitation Week is back with a focus on "built to rent" and large aggregator projects
From Tuesday to Thursday, November 23 to 25, conferences, workshops and seminars fill the program of the 9th Urban Rehabilitation Week, promoted by Vida Económica, with the support of the Porto City Council. The return to the face-to-face format will have as the main themes multifamily housing for rent ("built to rent") and projects such as the Campanhã Intermodal Terminal or the Matadouro [slaughterhouse] and debuts at the Alfândega do Porto Congress Center.

The initiative proposes to bring to the debate "the structuring themes of urban rehabilitation and regeneration, with a special look at the reality of the city of Porto", with the main associations of the real estate and construction sector, professional associations, and academia, within more than a hundred invited speakers.

The 2021 edition focuses on topics such as multifamily housing for rent ("built to rent"), affordable housing, senior living, or the dynamics of the office market in Porto. "Major mobilizing projects" such as the Campanhã Intermodal Terminal or the Matadouro that "are leveraging the transformation of the eastern part of the city" will also have dedicated panels.

The challenges of sustainability, industrialization, construction costs, as well as public support for decarbonization and the importance of technology, will also be on the stage of the Urban Rehabilitation Week of Porto.

On its way to completing ten editions, the initiative "asserts itself as the most important national event of the activation of the movement of urban regeneration and urban renewal in Portugal”. With free registration, it is aimed at professionals and individuals.

Last year, the Urban Rehabilitation Week kicked off with the debate "Economy, financing, and city - Where is the future?", where the economic recovery plan to overcome the pandemic and the strategies that cities should adopt to face the future with more confidence were discussed.
