WHO WE ARE
When land is expensive, it is often unfeasible to use if for community-oriented facilities such as libraries or schools. ULC acquires land and buildings at today’s prices to ensure that these properties will be available to serve urban communities when rising prices would otherwise make it too expensive in the future.
Certain challenging community projects — such as redeveloping a brownfield into an environmentally and socially responsible community — require more capital, resources, and coordination than any single organization or entity may possess. ULC provides expertise and resources to community partners and facilitates the community development process.
In circumstances where an area is losing affordable options, we help by preserving buildings in the neighborhood for both domestic and commercial use. This allows both community members and non profit to rent affordably.
WHAT WE DO
ULC will continue to play a unique and important real estate role on behalf of the community by acquiring, developing and preserving physical assets that are essential in meeting critical community needs especially in high poverty, low-income, underserved, at-risk communities.
We are in the community building business.
WHY WE DO IT
Urban Land Conservancy acquires, preserves, and develops real estate to under-served areas for long-term community benefit. Through the acquisition, development, and preservation of real estate in urban areas, we are supporting communities with assets such as schools, affordable housing, community centers and affordable nonprofit office space.
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.
