01 Dec Final ULI Advisory Services Panel Report Released, Featuring KB Advisory Group’s Jonathan Gelber
Last August, KB Advisory Group’s Jonathan Gelber participated in the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Advisory Services Panel for Fairplex in Pomona, California, and ULI released the final report for the panel last week.
ULI brought together the panel of members—developers, planners, financiers, market analysts, economists, architects, designers, and public officials—in 2019 to examine the economic and destination potential of the 487-acre, roughly 100-year old site. Fairplex is home to the Los Angles County Fair and poised for the fairground’s redevelopment to meet best the area’s “changing demographics and future market challenges.” Jonathan enjoyed serving with other professionals, working with the new Fairplex management team, touring the site and the adjacent communities, and interviewing stakeholders to pursue those goals.
The Advisory Services Panel program brings ULI members into communities dealing with a wide array of real estate and land use challenges. These multidisciplinary panels of professionals provide unbiased, expert advice, and specific recommendations for improvement. Members work directly with local leaders and draft plans to revive, rethink, and restore each community.
The results of the work in California last summer are available in the final public report, found here –
