Los Angeles attorney Paul Gelb and Kimberly Diamond, adjunct professor at Fordham University and CEO of Boaz Energy Group LLC, penned an article titled “Water Infrastructure and Adaptive Building Design: An Emerging Opportunity” for the spring 2019 issue of Commercial Real Estate Development Association’s Development magazine.

The issue of flooding in coastal areas causes trouble for property owners and developers. However, with advanced adaptive architecture and design principles, builders using design and infrastructure innovations are benefiting from water flow in coastal cities. Paul and Kimberly showcased how these solutions are creating opportunities for investment through cities such as Nanhui New City, which is part of the 30 Sponge Cities program in China that uses urban infrastructure projects to decrease flooding from rainwater runoff, increase groundwater absorption, and replenish water supply.
