Berwyn featured in Urban Land Institute Retail Report
Our fair city was recently featured in the Urban Land Institute (ULI) retail report. Berwyn was used as a case study along with other data points throughout the report and, specifically, on pages 8 and 23!
According to the report, ULI’s mission is to “provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.” The report “summarizes findings from a 2-day workshop and follow-up meetings completed as a part of ULI Chicago’s Retail Initiative. Attracting and maintaining vibrant commercial centers is a challenge that has become significantly greater in the past decade largely due to dramatic shifts in consumer behavior and retail delivery trends. ULI Chicago’s Retail Initiative is a multi-year initiative to bring best policies and practices in retail development directly to
community leaders, and to help foster an environment where they can work collaboratively to build stronger, sustainable retail as an integral part of their communities.”
