Virtual Tours

Project tours, a favorite feature of the ULI Fall Meeting, are included in this year’s virtual offerings. All attendees are encouraged to participate in tours of noteworthy projects from around the globe; no additional signup is necessary. The tours will be led by the visionaries who developed each project, and attendees can gain behind-the-scenes insights and ask questions.

The following are a few of the tours that will be offered; a complete list is available at

  • Aoyama Building, Tokyo. The innovative renovation of this 1972 structure, adjacent to the crown prince’s residence and directly above the Aoyama Itchome subway station, included selective architectural refinements, a dramatic redesign and re-tenanting of retail and amenities spaces, and extensive updates of internal systems.
  • Beach Plum Village, Nantucket, Massachusetts. Located on Nantucket Island, Beach Plum Village is a new residential community of 40 single-family cottages, with affordable homes that are permanently restricted at moderate prices and fully integrated with high-end ­market-rate homes.
  • Yanaguana Garden at Hemisfair, San Antonio. Yanaguana Garden at Hemisfair is a community gathering place in the heart of downtown San Antonio, complete with unique play structures, public art, and a popular splash pad.
