ULI Active Transportation and Real Estate Project

Across the globe, real estate developers are seizing a competitive advantage by leveraging growing interest in biking and walking among residents and tenants. At the same time, municipalities are promoting health, equity, and sustainability by investing in active transportation infrastructure projects, such as trails, greenways, bike lanes, and bike share systems.

ULI’s Active Transportation and Real Estate Project explores the interconnections among walking, bicycling, and real estate development. The Project is being undertaken as part of the Building Healthy Places Initiative, which develops resources that are widely distributed among ULI member and partner networks.

ULI is grateful to the Colorado Health Foundation for its support of this project and the ULI Building Healthy Places Initiative.
