AirBNB, Zipcar and co-working: Why sharing matters to real estate

The biggest economic trend of the 21st century may revolve around a concept most of us learned before kindergarten: sharing.   Runstad Center Affiliate Fellow Gabe Grant wrote in today’s DJC about some of the experiences the fellows shared this year, specifically their reflections on how the emerging “sharing economy” is shaping real estate.  His thoughtful article can be found here.

A film about cities: Oct. 3

“Place Capital: A Live Documentary Film About Cities” will be presented by the 2013 UW Runstad Center Affiliate Fellows on Oct. 3 at HUB Seattle, 220 2nd Ave S, Seattle 98104 (note address; this is NOT the HUB at the University of Washington) starting at 6:30 p.m.

The film is about the changing nature of cities and is based on the fellows’ travels to Berlin, Krakow, Fukushima and Detroit, places that have experienced destruction and renewal.  The event will look at how will the sharing economy is reshaping the urban experience and whether there are better ways to approach development in this community.
