Shaw Forums have covered such topics as capitalizing on the new markets tax credit; involving the community in neighborhood planning; making parks accessible to the community; community development corporations partnering with for-profit developers; managing gentrification; and green affordable housing. The Terwilliger Center team works with ULI’s other content areas to coordinate this annual event.
Legacy Forum for Multifamily Housing
The Legacy Forum, formerly the ULI/Carolyn and Preston Butcher Forum, is an annual invitation-only forum that brings together 25-30 executives from across the multifamily housing industry to explore various aspects of the industry, including shifts in public policies, trends affecting demand, and innovative financing. The Terwilliger Center works with Preston Butcher and Ron Terwilliger to organize the gathering during ULI’s Spring Meeting. For more information on past Legacy Forums, click here.
Rental Housing Affordability Symposium
Together with the Multifamily and Affordable-Workforce Housing Councils, the Center coordinates a day-long symposium at ULI’s Fall Meeting. This Symposium brings public sector officials into the room to explore the issues facing housing affordability; how to frame the discussion to get community buy-in; tools for preserving naturally occurring affordable housing (NOAH); and other strategies for expanding housing opportunities and more inclusive communities.
