With a theme of successional development, the 2017 National Town Builders Association’s Spring Roundtable will examine four transformative new urban projects that have been introduced over the past 36 years along the 30-A Corridor in Northwest Florida.  The lessons of Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Watercolor, and Alys Beach and how each one has affected the next over the decades is a fascinating story just waiting to be told during the Roundtable. 

The unveiling of the story will be told by those who have earned the right to share it – the visionaries, planners, developers, town architects, and a cast of others who have touched or been touched by these wonderful places they helped to create.

The 2017 NTBA Spring Roundtable will take place March 30 – April 2, 2017 in Seaside, Florida.  Noted new urban master planner Andres Duany and DPZ are the hosts of this important Roundtable, with generous assistance from Seaside Institute and financial support by our exclusive sponsor, James Hardie.
