Each year, ULI's Terwilliger Center for Housing recognizes exemplary developments that expand housing attainability in communities around the United States.

Puerto Rico's first mixed-income and resilient development, "missing middle" housing in Boise, housing and services for youths experiencing homelessness in Tacoma, sustainable affordable housing that replaced a parking lot in Santa Ana, and adaptive re-use on a UNESCO World Heritage site in San Antonio and are just some examples the audience will learn about.
