novdec_360As we look forward to turning the calendar over to 2015 in a few days, we wanted to look back on the topics that resonated with the readers of Urban Land Online in the past year.

In October, we announced the first class of the Urban Land 40 Under 40, which was by far our most popular story of the year. We also had some coverage of innovative practices across the globe, including how Wal-Mart is adapting to fit an urban footprint, a cluster of small restaurant concepts in Portland, the impact of the EB-5 program on commercial real estate, and a look at the rise of Vancouverism, as ULI had it’s first Spring Meeting outside of the United States.

Here are the top five most popular articles from 2014:

1. Urban Land Announces the 2014 40 Under 40

2. Wal-Mart Goes Smaller, More Urban

3. Clustering Micro-Restaurants

4. How Vancouver Invented Itself

5. Immigrant Investors: A New Source of Real Estate Capital

Thank you for your many thoughtful comments on these stories and looking forward to another great year in 2015.
