Robert S. Goldsmith, co-Chair of the firm’s Redevelopment & Land Use Department, will participate in a panel discussion on “EVS, AVS, and the future of Urban Growth and Redevelopment” at the 2018 New Jersey Future Redevelopment Forum, which will be held on Friday, March 9, 2018 from 8:30am – 3:45pm at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick. Mr. Goldsmith’s presentation is scheduled for 2:15pm – 3:45pm.
Coming advances in technology will trigger profound changes in how transportation systems function and in the form of the urban development that surrounds them. Growth in electric vehicle usage will create demand for new vehicle-powering support infrastructure and make existing infrastructure obsolete. The advent of autonomous vehicles may increase automobile trip-making and competition with public transit, while reducing parking demand. Mr. Goldsmith and his fellow panelists will discuss what developers, planners, and local officials should be thinking about and doing right now to prepare for this future.
Mr. Goldsmith's practice focuses on redevelopment, downtown and urban revitalization, transit oriented development, project financing and incentives, sustainable building initiatives and public-private partnerships. His experience encompasses counseling clients on the specialized issues in redevelopment related to parking demand, design and construction. Mr. Goldsmith also has broad experience in complex commercial litigation, construction litigation and appellate work. He is a New Jersey Future trustee and president of Downtown New Jersey.
