As part of our mission of creating and expanding opportunities for a full spectrum of quality, mixed-income, mixed-use housing, the Terwilliger Center aims to elevate best practices in residential development, evaluate innovations and market trends, and share practical examples of exemplary developments.

Below are reports and presentations from the Terwilliger Center and ULI Product Councils as well as select ULI Case Studies on innovative housing developments. Additional practical examples can be found in the previous winners and finalists of the Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Awards.
