Urban Universities and their Role in Central City Economics, University of California at Berkeley

February 26, 2015

UC Berkeley participates in regional and neighborhood economic development through a consortium of Bay Area universities that provides technical support to urban development and housing initiatives. UC Berkeley’s Institute of Urban and Regional Development assisted in planning the “”New Asia Town”” commercial district.

It is supported by Berkeley’s City and Regional Planning Department and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
