Spring Meeting Add On – A Tour of Austin: “Why Weird Works”

This tour is intended for ULI Members attending the Spring meeting in Houston, TX in May 2015.

Austin sits at the top of investors, equity and planners lists. Why? The city has a mystique of being weird: Live Music Capital of the World, a blueberry in the middle of the Texas cherry pie, a home for creatives and techies alike.

Come tour Austin before the 2015 Spring Meeting in Houston, Texas, and discover why weird works.


The Lunch Panel will include  perspectives on the Austin market from the music/entertainment industry and the tech industry.


We will begin our day with a panel of experts discussing the weird facets of Austin while enjoying some Texas fare. We will spend the afternoon touring several large-scale, mixed-use projects that have repurposed some iconic Austin real estate. After the tour, join us for roundtable discussions with the principals from those projects as well as other local market leaders.  The day will wrap with a casual reception including hors d’oeuvres and local libations.
