Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson will deliver a keynote address at the Marquette University Center for Real Estate’s 12th annual Real Estate Strategies Conference on Wednesday, May 3, 8 a.m. to noon, at the Alumni Memorial Union of Marquette University in downtown Milwaukee.
Johnson’s address will be titled “Milwaukee’s Bold Vision: 1 Million Residents.” John Johnson, research fellow in Marquette Law School’s Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education, will follow Mayor Johnson with a keynote presentation and discussion, “Growing Milwaukee’s Population to 1 Million: Lessons Learned from Peer Cities and Ideas for How It Will Happen.”
The Center for Real Estate’s 12th annual Real Estate Strategies Conference explores how commercial real estate can drive population growth and position Midwest cities to win. The two keynotes tie into this year’s conference theme, “We’re Building It, Will They Come?”
From adaptive reuse to transit-oriented development and public-private partnerships to community engagement and cultural amenities, the conference will focus on the innovative strategies and real-world examples that are transforming Milwaukee, Chicago and beyond, according to a press release from Marquette University, along with creating more vibrant and inclusive communities.
