Estefanía will emphasize that creative placemaking transcends aesthetic enhancements, fostering urban regeneration and invigorating community spirit in real estate developments.

Creative placemaking aims to create spaces that are accessible and welcoming to all, fostering a sense of community and belonging. These spaces must reflect the identities and needs of their users, ensuring that they are safe and accessible.

Emphasizing the importance of human-centred design, Estefanía argues against “design for design’s sake,” advocating for spaces that serve practical and emotional needs instead. She says, “Creative placemaking is not just about building structures; it’s about creating spaces that reflect and enhance a community’s unique culture and identity.”


The ELDI 2024 Conference in Panama City is more than just an event; it is an opportunity to shape the future of real estate in Latin America and beyond. With its focus on innovation, resilience, inclusivity, and sustainability, the conference promises to be a crucible of ideas that will drive the industry forward.
