As the US faces another unexpected market downturn, how can the real estate industry better weather current economic conditions, recover quickly, and flourish in a post-downturn market? Can an alignment with ULI’s mission “providing leadership in the responsible use of land, and creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide” help companies more successfully weather a downturn? ULI’s panelists will share their experiences from the last recession, and how their focus on sustainability, affordable housing, and opportunistic capital markets strategies helped them make it through the downturn and thrive in a post-recession market.
