Value Capture Finance: Making Urban Development Pay Its Way
March 4, 2009
Value Capture Finance is an idea that excites many ULI members and partners. It offers the logical idea that because urban investment in infrastructure and logistics, property and amenities, public realm or green spaces creates value beyond the direct assets that are the focus of the investment, some of that value (a portion not used simply to provide private gain or to support general taxation) could be used for direct local re-investment. As this report shows, it is an idea that appeals and a concept where there is currently a mood for innovation and experimentation.
