Tracy Hadden Loh is a fellow with the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Center for Transformative Placemaking at the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program. Her research focuses on commercial real estate and placemaking — how local assets affect the prospects and resilience of the people and enterprises that call a place home in urban, suburban and rural settings.

She has recently written about the need for reform in the real estate sector, including who benefits from new development and the governance challenges that increase the extreme spatialization of inequality in the United States.

Before joining Brookings, Loh was a senior data scientist at the Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis at the George Washington University School of Business. 

For two years, she represented Ward 1 on the Mount Rainier City Council in Prince George’s County, Maryland, and is currently a member of the board of directors of Greater Greater Washington, a transportation, housing and public policy nonprofit.
