CUES Director Renne quoted in GlobeSt.com article

In an article by David Wilkening titled, “The Branson Effect, Train-Style–Could Florida’s future commercial growth emulate Europe’s with a new rail system?” John L. Renne, Director and Associate Professor of Urban Planning at Florida Atlantic University and a Mobility Chair at the Urban Land Institute, tells GlobeSt.com:

“The recently opened Brightline in Miami is unique to the United States as it creates an experience only offered in places like Europe and Asia. Similar to these other cities, the Brightline is already proving to be a catalyst for urban infill projects in Downtown Miami that will reshape the city into a more walkable hub for the creative economy of the 21st Century.”
