Transit-Oriented Development

ULI’s long track record of advocating for transit-oriented development provides a rich knowledge base for Advisory Services panels on this issue. Past panels explored transit-oriented development as a revitalization tool and recommended strategies to leverage transit investments into sustainable development in urban and suburban locations.

Examples of transit-oriented development panels include:

Wilson Station, Chicago, Illinois
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

General Transportation

Smart communities will build infrastructure that supports sustainable land use and advances health, prosperity, and global competitiveness. ULI panels help communities think holistically to integrate land use and infrastructure to reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT), leverage existing infrastructure, and balance infrastructure investments to include both new growth and infill areas.

Examples of general transportation panels include:

Long Boat Key
Longboat Key, Florida

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Ports, Airports, and Rail

Ports, airports, and rail facilities are economic drivers for the communities in which they are located. The land use opportunities, especially for secondary uses surrounding these facilities, play a key role in businesses’ location decisions. ULI panels have a history of providing communities with successful short- and long-term strategies for leveraging these large multifaceted employment centers.

Examples of port, airport, and rail panels include:
