Philadelphia to Host ULI's 2016 Spring Meeting
April 19-21 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center
The ULI, an organization that provides leadership in the responsible use of land, has announced Philadelphia as the host city for the 2016 Spring Meeting.
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) will hold its 2016 Spring Meeting April 19-21 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
The Spring Meeting is open only to ULI full members. Among the main focuses for the 2016 gathering will be innovation, transformative placemaking, and the entrepreneurial culture that is taking root in cities across the United States. Philadelphia, which has not hosted a major ULI event in more than 20 years, is a prime example of this urban evolution.
In recent years, Philadelphia has regained much of its urban population thanks to key investments in residential and mixed-use development within the city center and urban neighborhoods. The concentration of technology companies and other knowledge-based businesses within the urban core has made city more attractive to millennials, who are seeking vibrant places to live, work, and play. More than $6.7 billion of new developments are under construction, including the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center, which is a $1.2 billion, 59-story commercial and retail complex that will be the third tallest building in the U.S. when it is completed by 2017, and significant residential, office and mixed-use developments connecting Center City and University City.
"The timing is perfect for bringing a ULI global meeting to Philadelphia -- a city so rich with history that is now undergoing a 21st century renaissance," said ULI Global CEO Patrick L. Phillips. "Our members can look forward to connecting with one another and seeing first-hand how successful partnerships between the public, private, and nonprofit sectors are making one of America's great cities even better."
