New and Upcoming Reports
Infrastructure 2013: Global Priorities, Global Insights The seventh annual global infrastructure report from ULI and Ernst & Young will put a wealth of up-to-date information on the latest infrastructure investment trends, challenges, and innovations at your fingertips. The report will be released at the 2013 ULI Spring Meeting in San Diego next week.
When the Road Price Is Right: Land Use, Tolls, and Congestion Pricing Will new toll roads, charges per mile of driving, and options for congestion-free highway travel change how people think about land use? This new ULI Infrastructure Initiative report explores expert opinions on the question, and concludes that new approaches could support development in compact, mixed-use nodes, if land use and transit are carefully coordinated with these investments.
