The importance of dedicated investment in downtown Chattanooga will be the featured topic at the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce’s Downtown Council meeting on Thursday.
Leading the discussion will be Joe Minicozzi, a principal of Urban3, LLC, which is a consulting company of the real estate developer Public Interest Project. In addition to outlining the benefits of investing downtown, Mr. Minicozzi will highlight opportunities which are currently available to parties interested in carrying that potential forward.
The meeting, sponsored by Office Furniture Warehouse, will take place from 7:30–8:30 a.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel, on 407 Chestnut St. Attendees are invited to come early and stay late for networking.
With a certification in regional and urban planning from the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), Mr. Minicozzi formerly served as the executive director of the Asheville Downtown Association. He is also a founding member of the Asheville Design Center. Mr. Minicozzi’s extensive work in both public and private city planning and real estate finance has allowed him to develop specific analytic tools for urban planning and investment. His work has been featured in many platforms, including The Wall Street Journal, Planning Magazine, The New Urban News, National Association of Realtors, the American Planning Association and many others. Mr. Minicozzi received a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Miami and master’s degree in Architecture and Urban Design from Harvard University.
