Housing Council

The Housing Council convenes a diverse group of stakeholders in a forum that finds solutions for affordability, design, construction, and accessibility.

Housing Council

The ULI New York Housing Council is a group of prominent New York owners, developers, investors, managers and public sector leaders topically focused around housing policy.  Our membership draws from a full range of price points (affordable and market) and housing vehicles (rental, condo, supportive, etc.).


The mission of the ULI New York Housing Council is the development of housing policies and sharing of best practices in support of accessible, affordable, sustainable, and thriving communities throughout New York.

Goals & Objectives

The focus of the ULI New York Housing Council is to discuss opportunities and challenges that relate to the creation, development and financing of housing as it relates to policy.  In this context, the Housing Council convenes a diverse group of stakeholders  in a forum that contributes to finding solutions for affordability, design, construction and accessibility.

  • The Housing Council‘s focal point is the nexus of the solutions that are presented as recommendations; including economic, policy initiatives, the environment and best-practices.
  • A key behind this initiative is to integrate the local activities of the ULI New York Housing Council with those of the national level ULI “initiatives groups” which are collaborating on the agenda for full-spectrum housing, workforce housing, land-use, infrastructure and energy.
  • This council format is similar ULI’s national product councils.  Members convene every other month to hear from a prominent best speaker(s) from the Housing industry.
