Urban Product Council

Urban Product Council

The ULI Northwest Urban Product Council in Portland, Oregon consists of 30 of the city’s premier developers and real estate practitioners. The Council meets on a quarterly basis in an effort to provide professional development opportunities and to be a forum for industry issues:

Professional Development

  • Establishes recognition as an industry leader
  • Provides a forum for information exchange among peers on the “state of the art” in the development field
  • Ensures an opportunity to develop and maintain an educational environment for addressing development problems and opportunities

Forum for Industry Issues

  • Provides access to industry leader discussions on the major social and economic goals and issues of the day related to development
  • Provides constructive interaction with public official members to promote engagement with public agencies and public interest organizations
  • Allows participants to apply research to innovative applications in land use planning, which can then be disseminated through Urban Land magazine and/or other publications, forums, and meetings
