What is UrbanPlan?

ULI’s UrbanPlan is a realistic, engaging exercise in which participants learn about the fundamental forces that affect real estate development in our communities. Participants experience the challenging issues, private and public sector roles, complex trade-offs, and fundamental economics at play when proposing land use solutions to vexing growth challenges.

Participants work in competing development teams to respond to a hypothetical government land sale site that has been launched for sale. Teams work together to create a feasible proposal that meets the city’s objectives, the community’s interests, and the investor’s bottom line.

ULI Singapore will be holding two UrbanPlan for Public Officers workshops in 2019. Through this educational initiative, public officers will gain a deeper understanding of their own role in the shaping of the built environment and the tools to create a collaborative relationship with private sector partners to make city-led projects a success. ULI member volunteers serve as private sector facilitators who would challenge the conceptual proposal and act as a selection committee to review the final proposals.
