The Case For a Cost Segregation Strategy
If your clients haven’t considered procuring a cost segregation study on their properties, they may not have claimed the appropriate amount of depreciation. A cost segregation study is the process of identifying and separating personal property that is or has been grouped with real property. These studies can benefit any type of commercial property. Engineering-based studies tend to be the most reliable and preferred by the tax court. Cost segregation studies became even more valuable when the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) changed depreciation rules.
RESHAPING CITIES – Post-Pandemic Perspectives
We are living in challenging times. ULI and the Sharing Cities Alliance invite you to join us to learn about opportunities for change in our post-pandemic world. In this environment, predicting how the future will unfold is next to impossible. However, we know that technological, social, and environmental developments within our societies are changing the way we live, work, learn, and play. We know that resilience is essential to our ability to adapt and resilience is born, in part, from information exchange and problem solving. Therefore, it is critical to exchange insights and try to turn challenges into opportunities, together. We invite you to participate in this learning experience designed to expose you to different people sharing their experiences and perspectives.
Creating Value through Transit-Oriented Development
This webinar analyzes best practices in the design and delivery of urban development in and around transit interchanges, looking at opportunities and challenges of PPP and of the interrelationship between city infrastructure and commercial development/real estate. The panel addresses key questions including: How can public and private sectors collaborate more effectively, and how can they create more value around public transport infrastructure developments? How can we facilitate mixed used developments, and redevelopment of obsolete uses, at or near transit stations? How to capture land value increases resulting from infrastructure developments for all stakeholders, including the community to benefit from?
This webinar is free for ULI Members.

Transportation, Public Space, and Equity in the Time of Coronavirus – Video on Demand
Around the country, cities have been moving rapidly to adapt roads, parking lots, and other transportation assets to the needs of residents to travel, recreate, and support local business in safer and socially distant ways. From slow streets, to dining streets, to closed streets, to the use of parking facilities for drive-in movies, farmer’s markets, and children’s play zones, communities are taking a fresh look at existing transportation infrastructure. How are considerations of social and racial equity informing these decisions? How well are these shifts meeting the needs of communities of color?
