Washington, DC city planners and community leaders launched the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI) in March of 2000 and developed a revitalization vision plan for the area. This vision plan encompassed a memorandum of understanding between the city and the 19 local, regional, and federal agencies with interests along the Anacostia waterfront. Because the project involved an extensive waterfront redevelopment effort that could transform Washington, DC, a unique ULI Advisory Services Blue Ribbon Team was convened consisting of “internationally recognized waterfront redevelopment experts” from numerous disciplines.
Initial outreach was provided by the Cincinnati Department of Economic Development and the Over-the-Rhine Foundation who requested ULI’s partnership in gathering 12 outside experts to develop a strategy to address neighborhood concerns. These experts, in collaboration with a steering committee of 30 neighborhood residents, developers, businesses, and organizations, had three objectives: Address the need for consensus building and strong leadership that can move the community from planning to implementation and action; Develop a comprehensive housing and economic development strategy for the area; and Recommend strategies for public and private sector funding.
The panel focused on the connection between health and land use. ULI was contracted through The Colorado Health Foundation to provide advice on public health issues through Healthy Places: Designing an Active Colorado initiative. The city of Lamar, CO was selected through a competitive process by the foundation to participate in the ASP program, as the city demonstrated readiness and ability to engage its stakeholders in identifying and addressing improvements to the built environments that encourage active living.
The panel’s assignment was to formulate a plan to revitalize the Southwest Center Mall by exploring alternative uses for the anchor stores, studying the feasibility of mixed uses, and considering the desirability of civic and public uses to contribute to a sense of place at the Southwest Center Mall area. The panel also considered strategies for public investment through public/ private partnerships to address the challenging economic and infrastructure needs. Finally, the panel was charged with formulating implementation strategies for achieving its recommendations.
The panel’s primary responsibility was to evaluate the economically viable and mutually beneficial activities in and surrounding the market, and provide a strategy and recommendations
The assistance of a ULI Advisory Services Panel was requested to assess the effectiveness of the UC Merced long-range development plan in order to achieve the university’s vision and goals for the campus and the associated University community. In addition, the Panel was asked to think about how the campus could play an important long-term role in regional economic diversification, provide a model for long-term planning that prevents urban sprawl and conserves important natural resources and farmland, and ensure that the development adheres to regional conservation goals and mitigation programs to protect natural resources.

Generate parcels and understand their financial return with this simple generative tool. Draw as a polygon or a line and see the lots populate and count automatically. Combine with the infrastructure tools & analytics module to fully understand costs vs yield of greenfield development
If you are working on a large master plan and need to break it down into smaller analytical nodes or precincts - the SubPrecinct can help you do exactly that. Simply group objects onto layers and identify the boundary of your precinct with a polygon. Once that is done, see the important metrics group by precinct. All the data is available to export as a csv
Randomly generate trees on a shape to meet your coverage requirements. View a report on the number of trees created, the average cost to maintain and the average amount of carbon sequested
Want to keep all the 3D buildings except for what is on your site? Run the context app - and it will bring in the 3D buildings within a radius, while removing those from your site.
Understand the amount of sky viewable from any ground point in this app. Useful for tall precincts, where this analysis can be costly and done far too late - but is required for compliance.
This app allows you to use a prior project as a baseline or standard for you to build your new project around. Leverage your previous project as a kit of parts - then monitor your use of those parts and ensure you are hitting the necessary KPIs for each of them.
