DC’s NoMa is Focus of Cornell University’s Urban Development Conference March 27-28
Case Studies in Urban Development (CSUD) is a series of annual conferences that intends to provide students, faculty, and area practitioners with the opportunity to learn from international examples of successful building projects that exemplify interdisciplinary approaches to successful urban development and design. Previous CSUD conferences featured Seattle, London, and San Francisco. The series is funded by Cornell alumnus Matt Witted ’79.

NoMa is a rapidly developing mixed-use neighborhood north of the U.S. Capitol and Union Station in Washington, D.C. In 2007-2008, private developers invested over $1 billion in the 35-block area covered by the NoMa BID, and have plans to develop more than 20 million square feet of office, residential, hotel, and retail space over the next ten years.
