About Us

maryludgin_bw_forwebWelcome to ULI in Chicago. As one of the oldest district councils in the country with more than 1,300 members, ULI Chicago is the preeminent multidisciplinary real estate forum and is in a unique position to convene industry leaders and policy makers to provide leadership in the region for wise land use planning, long-term investment and sustainable development.  ULI Chicago brings leaders together to address and build consensus around solutions to land use challenges.  We also provide a vibrant forum for professional growth and development.

ULI Chicago’s Program of Work is varied and broad, with particular emphasis on our Technical Assistance Services and our on-going Retail Initiative.  We regularly convene events designed to promote interaction among members and focus attention on particular land use and development issues. I invite you to learn more about ULI by exploring our website including a schedule of local events in Chicago.
