*November 7:  **USGBC Green Luncheon "New Urbanism"** - /Albuquerque, NM

There have been 2 patterns of development in American history - the 
traditional neighborhood pattern, and the suburban pattern.  "New 
Urbanism" presenter, Rob Dickson, provides a visual comparison showing 
the differences, and showing why urbanism is more important than 
architecture to the green building movement. 

Rob is a New Urbanist real estate developer based in Albuquerque, NM.  
He developed The Lofts at Albuquerque High and BelVedere/Urban Courtyard 
Living, involving the conversion of 4 historic school buildings into 
residential and office uses, and the construction of a number of new 
buildings on surrounding sites containing residential, retail, office, 
and civic uses. The total project value is about $50 million. It was 
done in 4 phases between 2001-2008.

Mr. Dickson holds an accounting degree from Southern Illinois University 
and a law degree from the University of North Carolina. He is also a 
licensed real estate broker, was heavily involved in the funding and 
creation of the East Downtown (EDo) Master Plan in Albuquerque, a 
Form-Based Code for the revitalization of Broadway Boulevard and Central 
Avenue, and hopes to begin construction in Fall 2012 on an historic 
rehabilitation of the De Anza Motor Lodge in Upper Nob Hill into 39 
rental apartments plus a café.  Rob also recently served on the 
Environmental Planning Commission for the City of Albuquerque, is a 
member of Congress for the New Urbanism, the National Trust for Historic 
Preservation, and the Sierra Club, is Executive Director of the EDo 
Neighborhood Association, and was Vice Chair of the Governor’s Task 
Force on “Our Communities, Our Future” whose reports are entitled 
“Livability!” and “Querencia”.
