Program Number: 3047

Program Date: 02/20/2020


The real estate industry is on the verge of major disruption due to futuristic technologies. These technologies are changing the way developers and cities plan for future development. Two such technologies are ride-sharing applications and autonomous, connected, electric, and shared (“ACES”) vehicles. The technologies will decrease the need for parking spaces, both in structures and lots, and present opportunities for real estate professionals to rethink their plans to prepare for ACES vehicles. This CLE will discuss that pending disruption across the industry and how zoning laws, parking regulations, new construction requirements, and urban planning laws may be affected.
