“A Bridge Home” project to assist transition to long-term housing in Los Angeles

ULI held intensive charrettes with three architecture firms (DLR Group, Studio One Eleven and JFAK Architects) and with three landscape architecture firms (EPT Design, Relm and SWA).  The teams focused on solving three site challenges: a 50-bed site; a 100-bed site; and a 150-bed site. In addition, ULI Los Angeles is collaborating with CBRE and Gensler to identify sites for the 50/100/150 bed needs and a list of all sites in each City Council district which are owned by the Federal, State, County or City governments. ULI will then work with the City Council members (at their request) to determine the best sites in their districts.

New Research: Better Cities, Better Climate – Better Returns on Investment?

New research from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and the Coalition for Urban Transitions, supported by a consortium of leading global real estate investors and managers, shows that well-designed, compact cities are better for investors as well as citizens and the environment. Entitled Supporting Smart Urban Development: Successful investing in density, the report finds that cities with “good density”—dense development that is thoughtfully designed to promote a high quality of life—may be more resilient and prosperous in the long term. According to the report, these cities are more likely to provide higher risk-adjusted real estate investment returns than cities without “good density”. It marks the first-ever study attempting to quantify the impact of quality of place on real estate investment returns.
