Urban Land is the magazine of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), first published in 1941. We publish four print editions per year, plus online articles nearly every business day. With this online edition, our goal is to give you:

  • Timely, succinct and useful information from ULI
  • Specific stories and examples, told in more people’s voices
  • Information from your peers and colleagues in real estate & land use
  • Perspectives on today’s issues and topics that you don’t get anywhere else

We’d love to hear how we’re doing. Please send us your questions and suggestions at [email protected].
