Event Description

Register now for ULI San Francisco’s one-day summit: Housing the Bay! Join us as we explore potential solutions to the housing supply and affordability crisis in the Bay Area. Focus Areas include the Public Process, Innovative Financing, and the Cost of Building.

Since early 2017, ULI SF has been working on its Housing the Bay initiative with industry leaders and partner organizations from around the Bay Area. Through working groups, convenings, and interactive educational programs, we have been bringing the brightest minds together to foster solutions to our region’s housing crisis.

On March 23rd, Summit panels and presentations will focus on innovative solutions in the realms of financing, construction costs, policy, and the public process. Speakers from around North America will engage in conversations on lessons learned, successful case studies, and best practices with local Bay Area leaders.

Audience members will be asked to take part in the conversations during interactive discussions at the lunch break, during Q&A, and over drinks at the reception after the Summit.
