Commercial Corridor and Neighborhood Revitalization – ULI resource list


Commercial corridors present a cross-cutting challenge and opportunity for land-use and development. While these auto-dominated roadways characterize past patterns of successful business and infrastructure investment, in many places these corridors have devolved, creating a host of economic, safety, environmental, aesthetic and redevelopment challenges.

Around the United States, many urban and suburban communities are experimenting with how to reshape these spaces in order to revitalize lagging business districts, attract and retain residents, and to provide enhanced transit options to serve all users.

ULI’s networks and Centers have been highly involved in some of these efforts. Here, you’ll find helpful resources from ULI and other organizations about the strategies, tools, and tactics of commercial corridor and neighborhood revitalization.

Publications are listed in broad categories of source and publication type. Understandably, this list is not comprehensive but we hope this information useful.

If you’d like more detail about ULI’s work or other resources, we encourage you to contact our Resource Library or other relevant ULI content experts.
