Case Studies

ULI Case Studies showcase innovative approaches and best practices in real estate and urban development. Each case study provides detailed information about the ideas, plans, performance, and lessons learned for an exemplary and often award-winning development project. Each also includes project facts, timelines, financial data, site plans, and photos.

The ULI Case Studies program is offered as a ULI member benefit. It began in 1971, was discontinued in 2010, and then revived in 2013 with a new platform. That new platform includes improved graphics, interactive maps, and videos. Further improvements are planned to enhance searchability, and the program is still a work in progress.

ULI Case Studies are currently offered on two separate platforms—archive case studies and recent case studies—that are described below. We are planning to integrate these platforms into one platform in the future, as budgets allow. You can view the new case studies or visit the archive by clicking the links below.
