On January 16, 2014, ULI’s Terwilliger Center for Housing, in partnership with the American Planning Association and the National Multifamily Housing Council, held the first annual ULI/Carolyn and Preston Butcher Forum on Multifamily Housing. Attended by 50 industry leaders, the event provided a forum to discuss the changing multifamily residential landscape and led to the development of a series of “big ideas” for expanding the availability of rental housing nationwide. The ten principles presented here are a summary of the ideas framed at this event.
This presentation was developed by Michelle McDonough Winters, Senior Visiting Fellow for Housing at the ULI Terwilliger Center. Special thanks to Doug Bibby and Mark Obrinsky at the National Multifamily Housing Council, who provided feedback on the development of the ten principles and assisted with some content of the presentation.
