Chester has become the first UK city to go
under the microscope of the world renowned cities think tank the
Urban Land Institute (ULI).
A ten-strong panel of experts from America
and Europe flew into Chester in November to examine aspects of
Chester’s potential for the future.
The project is being backed by a consortium of
public and private sector stakeholders led by The Grosvenor Estate,
and including, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Chester
Renaissance, NWDA, Bank Of America, University
of Chester and Chester Race Company.
A non profit research and education
organisation, ULI provides ‘leadership in the responsible use of
land in the creation of sustainable and thriving communities
Its experts have recently advised on the
European Quarter, Brussels; recovery of the disaster-hit New
Orleans; Shanghai’s burgeoning investment potential on the world
stage and, in the near future, London’s Olympic Park Legacy.
