About Us

Our mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. ULI Philadelphia carries forth that mission by serving the area’s public and private sectors with pragmatic land use expertise and education.

About Us

ULI is a nonprofit research and education organization supported by its members. Founded in 1936, the Institute now has almost 40,000 members in 95 countries, representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines working in private enterprise and public service – including leading property owners, investors, advisors, developers, architects, lawyers, lenders, planners, regulators, contractors, engineers, university personnel and students.

ULI Philadelphia is one of ULI’s largest and most robust District Councils, with hundreds of members across the region, including regional satellites in Central Pennsylvania, Delaware, Lehigh Valley, and Southern New Jersey.

Through District Council sponsored educational forums and events, the opportunity to influence the local land use policy continues to be the focus and achievement of the District Councils.
