ULI Turkey

The Urban Land Institute is a global non-profit education and research institute supported by its members. Its mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. Established in 1936, the Institute has over 40,000 members around the world representing all aspects of land use and development disciplines.

ULI has been active in Europe since the early 1990s and today we have over 3,000 members. ULI Europe has a particularly strong presence in the major European real estate markets of the UK, Germany, France, and the Netherlands but is also active in emerging markets such as Turkey and Poland.

ULI Turkey provides a forum to foster and communicate global experience in land use.

In addition to ULI’s mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and in bringing together all stakeholders in order to create value for sustainable communities, ULI Turkey focuses on Turkey’s individual issues on real estate. ULI Turkey aims to:

  • introduce the Turkish real estate sector to global best practices;
  • offer the sector a point of contact with the global real estate market;
  • foster dialogue on the institutions and financial depth of the Turkish real estate sector as well as sustainable development;
  • contribute to the cultivation of young leaders

ULI Turkey established an Advisory Board of Woman Leaders in Real Estate in 2016 to increase the number of women employees and women leaders in the real estate industry and to enhance their efficiency and presence. Our strategic plan is available for download in Turkish and in English.

ULI Turkey members represent a select group of individuals from prominent firms of the industry and we could not achieve our goals without members who play an active role in shaping our programmes and initiatives.   To join this resourceful and dynamic group, please contact turkey@uli.org.
