Nearly half the buildings that will be standing in 2030 do not exist today. That means we have a tremendous opportunity to reinvent our urban areas, making them more sustainable and livable for future generations. But for this vision to become reality, those interested in planning, growth and new buildings need reliable data about emerging trends and smart projections about how those trends will play out.
