Practical solutions for difficult land use issues.

Since 1947, over 600 Advisory Services teams have helped find creative, practical solutions for some of the most challenging issues facing today’s urban, suburban, and rural communities.

Communities around the world have asked ULI to convene Advisory Services panels to:

  • Get timely, candid, and unbiased input from expert land use professionals.
  • Kick-start critical conversations and move beyond deadlock.
  • Gain fresh insights and discover innovative solutions to the most complex real estate development challenges.

In a concentrated one-week effort, panels provide results. We work with local governments, private developers, community development corporations, and many other organizations to address the most challenging real estate and land use issues facing communities today.

Panels bring together the best and brightest from ULI’s diverse membership, including developers, planners, financiers, market analysts, economists, architects, and public officials to provide practical and candid advice that is not available from any other source.

 

ASImpact2013_Flo CoverFor more than 65 years the Advisory Services Program has been providing strategic advice to communities on a wide array of land use and real estate topics. Many panels’ recommendations have powerfully affected the cities that hosted them and transformed them forever. This report tells the stories of 11 of these panels, which took place around the world between 1948 and 2011 and cover topics ranging from the rebuilding of downtown Oklahoma City following the 1995 bombing to the redevelopment of Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong. In some cases, the panel’s recommendations were implemented within a few years; in others, implementation took decades; and in still others, progress has yet to be made.
