Worthington City Event

Development in a Changing and Growing Region
February 5, 2015

A Cities Forum entitled “Development in a Changing & Growing Region,” is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 5, 2015 at the McConnell Arts Center, 777 Evening Street, Worthington. The forum will showcase successful redevelopment initiatives for established communities.

Opportunities abound in the Central Ohio market for locating new multi-housing projects as well as creating attractive commercial sites in new and existing buildings. The 2015 featured city is Worthington, Ohio and Matt Greeson, Worthington’s City Manager, will provide a brief update on successful “repurposed” development activity.

We are pleased to provide this forum as many Central Ohio Communities are in the process of evaluating proposed new multi-housing complexes as well repurposing older buildings and sites in critical corridors. We value sharing lessons learned as well as new information on market conditions for planners, local governments, elected officials and developers,” notes MORPC Executive Director William Murdock.

Keynote speaker is Ken Danter from The Danter Company. Mr. Danter has directed the completion of over 10,000 projects in every state in housing, motel, office building, historic re-use, resort, commercial, and recreational. Identifying market support potential through the use of merging consumer data with planning and developing functions has been pioneered at The Danter Company.

Mr. Danter’s 40+ years of experience and his unique perspective due to his pioneering methodologies make him a sought-after speaker on real estate markets and development, particularly multifamily issues. He has written several articles for Mortgage Banking magazine and regularly provides insight for local and national publications on real estate market issues.

Due largely to Mr. Danter’s research innovations, The Danter Company's pioneering research has been widely quoted in publications across the country, including USA Today, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and The Cleveland Plain Dealer, and Changing Times. The company has also been named six times to American Demographics' "Best 100 Sources for Marketing Information."
