Who we are

The Urban Land Conservancy (ULC), a nonprofit organization established in 2003, uses real estate as a tool to enrich  urban communities. In much the same way that a land trust preserves open space for future generations, we preserve real estate assets in urban areas to ensure their continued community benefit.

Our strategies and tools include land banking and community-inspired real estate development or, more concisely, community development.

How we work

  • Form long-term partnerships with nonprofit, for-profit, and governmental organizations to assist urban communities in addressing their real estate needs
  • Acquire and hold strategic sites to preserve affordability in anticipation of market changes
  • Serve as or partner with the master developer on community developments
