HOW WE WORK
In January 2018, Shift Research Lab published a report titled, Exploring Colorado’s Housing Affordability Challenges in All of Their Complexity. The report argues that Colorado’s housing crisis is largely a supply issue, and now is the time to develop innovative approaches to improving our housing system.
Urban Land Conservancy acquires, develops and preserves community real estate assets in urban areas for a variety of community needs such as schools, affordable housing, community centers and office space for nonprofits. ULC’s unique approach and creative methods to improve the Denver region through strategic real estate development has been noted in CityLab from The Atlantic and The Guardian.
Challenging community projects require more capital, resources, and coordination than any single organization may possess. ULC provides expertise and resources to facilitates the community development process.
In circumstances where an existing community asset is in danger of closing, ULC works to preserve the building and land so that the organization can continue to serve the community.
