Place Based Economic Development
U3 Advisors believes that anchor institutions - universities, medical centers, and non-profit and civic organizations – are important economic engines that can be leveraged to regenerate and strengthen their surrounding neighborhoods.
U3 Advisors leverages and captures institutional demand to enhance the physical environment, secure economic activity, and attract private investment through place-based strategies. Our strategies have included developing institutional housing incentive programs, designing local procurement strategies, as well as enhancing and strengthening community development organizations.
