Membership in the ULI LA Housing Council is by invitation and is a specific benefit for ULI members. Attendance in the ULI LA Housing Council meetings is limited to ULI members, who may invite non-ULI members to attend our meetings as guests for up to two meetings.


  1. Gentrification and Housing Displacement Around Transit Corridors:  A ULI-LA / LA THRIVES “big table” joint discussion. New data are emerging highlighting one of the key questions about the growth of our region – what is the impact of investment on existing residents, and how can we mitigate displacement?  Los Angeles continues to invest more in its public transit infrastructure, and with the potential of additional funds through Measure M, LA is slated to build one of the largest public transportation systems in the country.  Our speakers and panelists will discuss the latest market and demographic research on displacement, and discuss the implications on housing affordability, development, displacement, and policy solutions for Los Angeles.
