Finding the Market for Health and Wellness: How Whole Foods and Westin Did It

Thursday, April 10
10:45 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Vancouver Convention Centre West, Room 114/115
Concurrent Session 

A fundamental principle of successful real estate development is to make market-driven decisions, and that principle is particularly important for developers and investors who are looking at cutting-edge opportunities. ULI’s Building Healthy Places initiative is not based on a theoretical concept; it is an acknowledgement of a potentially profitable new market based on health and wellness. In this session, developers and investors who have successfully identified and responded to this market will share their knowledge and experience and lessons learned.
