Save the Date for our 2024 Housing the Bay Summit, happening on May 8, 2024 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco!
The time to create more housing for more people at all income levels is now. Housing the Bay 2023 was an opportunity to reflect on this moment in time, rethink our strategies, and work to get more housing built in the region. The theme and content did just that as we focused on how to Reflect, Recalibrate, and Build towards a more inclusive and equitable Bay Area that has more housing for all.
Over the last six years, Housing the Bay has examined the drivers of our housing crisis, highlighted public and private sector solutions, and elevated the voices of a broad range of people from across our industry and across North America. In 2023, we brought you inspiring ideas and new strategies for generating more housing supply and increasing housing affordability, with a clear-eyed focus on what we can learn from the last few years, how we can do things differently and better, and how we can get more units built in the coming years.
In 2017, ULI SF launched Housing the Bay, a multi-year initiative to support the vision of a Bay Area with healthy, sustainable, and affordable housing options for everyone.
Through Housing the Bay we are exploring new solutions to break through housing roadblocks, improve housing affordability, and ensure more people have access to the housing they need. Guided by our members’ expertise in development and finance, policy and governance, community engagement and equity, we are building new possibilities and new solutions – while remaining conscious of the context that has brought us to the present moment.
The people and communities of the Bay Area are at the center of our work. Safe, healthy, sustainable, and affordable housing for everyone is essential for our region to continue to thrive into the 21st century. We are working to create this reality by advancing a common language and shared understanding, and through collaboration and cooperation with other organizations and institutions committed to this work.
The Housing the Bay initiative is practical and pragmatic, and aspirational and optimistic. We believe there is a role for all of us to play in lending our expertise, insight, and energy to this effort. Join us in making this a Bay Area for everyone.
