Future of cities
A special four-part series from The Bond Buyer
The coronavirus pandemic, budgetary strain, civil unrest, and stay-at-home mandates have dramatically altered the landscape for our nation’s cities. This multi-platform series from The Bond Buyer examines this in four parts, each segment focusing on a different aspect of how life in and the finances of America’s cities could be altered.
We explore how cities of all sizes are being impacted by outmigration, and where the greatest long-term risks lie; the hard realities and intangibles of the so-called gathering economy – conventions, conferences, theater, sports and arts; how many businesses are at an inflection point with urban office space; and problems that lie ahead and how resilience has taken on a new meaning.
For each, we dig in on the problems and discuss potential solutions with a written story and a companion podcast. The series also includes a kickoff video discussion spanning all four topics. Browse this page for all our Future of Cities content.
