Jill Ferrari, a partner at Shelborne Development and vice chair of ULI Michigan, and Eric Larson, chief executive officer of both the Larson Realty Group and the Downtown Detroit Partnership, who is also serving as a co-chair of the 2018 ULI Spring Meeting Host Committee, were recently interviewed on a podcast produced by Crain’s Detroit Business.

“There’s so much curiosity about what’s going on in the city of Detroit, it actually wasn’t that hard of a sell right now. It’s a perfect time for this meeting,” said Ferrari.

More than 3,000 real estate professionals from around the world will descend on Detroit for the Urban Land Institute’s Spring Meeting, a three-day conference that will focus on the city’s revitalization successes and challenges.

During ULI’s conference at the Cobo Center, organizers plan to showcase what’s working in Detroit to bring to market difficult-to-finance residential and commercial real estate projects, while highlighting new projects that are starting to break ground downtown and in the city’s neighborhoods.

The meeting is open to full members of ULI and associate members living in Michigan. For more details, visit spring.uli.org.
