Greg Lindsay on The Future of Cities, Millennial Suburbs, and Multigenerational Homes


This week, we officially kick off a series of interviews about the history and future of cities.

Our first guest is Greg Lindsay, who has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things urban. Greg is the director of applied research at NewCities and director of strategy at its mobility offshoot CoMotion. He is also a partner at FutureMap, a geo-strategic advisory firm based in Singapore, a non-resident senior fellow of The Atlantic Council’s Foresight, Strategy, and Risks Initiative.

On July 14-16, Greg and NewCities are hosting New Housing Solutions LIVE, a free, virtual housing conference. The conference will include special sessions on technology and design, Millennials' “missing middle” housing, the future of the suburbs, and more. Register here:
