Nearly 1,000 people participated in ULI’s Idea Generator, a month-long competition that produced more than 100 ideas for concurrent sessions at the 2013 ULI Fall Meeting in Chicago. The idea with the most votes was added as an individual session.
The winner of this year’s competition is Christopher Bledsoe of Stage 3 Properties. He will present “Shared Housing Meets Micro Real Estate” as the crowd-picked session on Thursday, November 7 from 11:15 AM to 12:30 AM. This session will explore the trends behind the emergence of the multi-billion dollar room-share market. In addition, pioneering developers will discuss how they are re-imagining housing solutions for first-time urban renters and galvanizing participants in the multifamily sector to bring the shared housing model out of the shadows of the underground market.
