“The Advisory Services program is, in my opinion, the very best outreach program offered by ULI. It truly reflects our core mission of making the built environment better for all.”

Together we are changing the world, one community at a time.
For more than 70 years, ULI members have delivered change in our cities through ULI’s Advisory Services. Whether it be the devastation of disaster, food access and healthy design, or a shortage of housing choices, Advisory Services panels have offered unbiased and independent solutions to the most complex problems facing communities.
Through this program, ULI members integrate into communities dealing with a wide array of real estate and land use challenges to provide unbiased, expert advice and specific recommendations for improvement. Members link together with local leaders to draft a plan to revive, rethink, and restore communities around the globe to ultimately enact change and improve the lives of the people who live there.
Panels bring together the best and brightest from ULI’s diverse membership — developers, planners, financiers, market analysts, economists, architects, designers, and public officials — to provide practical solutions and objective advice not available from any other source.
Since 1947, more than 650 panels have assisted with the redevelopment of communities in 47 U.S. states, 12 countries, and 4 continents. This report tells the stories of 11 of these panels, which took place around the world between 1948 and 2011 and cover topics ranging from the rebuilding of downtown Oklahoma City following the 1995 bombing to the redevelopment of Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong.
