Andrés Ampudia Eric Schertzing Alan Mallach Andrew Moseley

The United States is neither the first nor the only country to battle vacant properties. Property abandonment and deterioration is a global problem, and US practitioners can gain valuable perspective on tackling vacancy from their international peers. In this session, we will discuss the global scale of vacancy and learn about creative strategies and efforts to address vacant property in Mexico and Scotland. We will also explore the challenges Eastern European countries face as they confront the legacy of thousands of aging Soviet-era apartment blocks.
