Autonomous Vehicles

Tuesday, October 24, 2017


Autonomous Vehicles may be the next great disruptor in the American economy! But the technology presents unique challenges and opportunities for the private and public sectors. The auto and tech industries are investing billions to get the technology to market, but the regulatory environment at the local, state, and federal levels is uncertain. The land use and real estate development communities will have to innovate to change the way space is used and buildings are constructed. Areas such as Northern Virginia, with its large, highly educated work force stand to benefit the most. Among the most pressing questions are:

  • Will decreasing demand for parking lower the cost of constructing buildings in densely populated metro areas and free up space for more profitable use?
  • How will autonomous vehicles be regulated at the local, state, and federal level?
  • Will the widespread adoption of autonomous vehicles actually result in more traffic in areas like Northern Virginia?
  • Will more people live further from the urban job centers due to a less stressful commute? Or will the freeing up of space formerly used as parking make urban living more affordable?
  • Will transportation systems have to be reimagined to maximize the economic potential of autonomous vehicle technology?

If you are involved in any aspect of commercial real estate, this technology will affect your business. You need to come to this program and find out more.
