ULI issues call for best development projects

Urban Land Institute New York (ULI NY) chairman Marty Burger has called for submissions for the 2018 Awards for Excellence in Development, a statewide contest that sets the standard for responsible land use and development practices.

The Awards for Excellence in Development recognize New York’s real estate leaders who demonstrate the strongest commitment to planning, design, sustainability and resilience, market success and community impact.

The development community is invited to submit their best projects for Awards in housing (both market rate and affordable), office, mixed-use, institutional, civic space, repositioning or redevelopment, hotel, and retail before the November 3 deadline.

“Developers and architects in New York continue to reach new heights in creating resilient and responsible land use projects across the state, setting new industry standards and expectations for the rest of the country and world,” said Burger.


“The ULI New York Awards for Excellence honors exemplary projects in real estate that set a precedent in the development community.”

The Awards are open to ULI members and non-members alike across all industry sectors who have worked on private, public, and non-profit projects. Applications may be submitted for projects located anywhere within New York State, except for Westchester County which is part of ULI Westchester/Fairfield.

“The ULI NY Awards for Excellence is a reminder that responsible and creative land use makes all of the difference for creating long-lasting and sustainable communities,” said Greta Guggenheim, Awards Committee Co-Chair and CEO & Partner at TPG Real Estate Finance Trust.

“I am excited to be part of the process that widely recognizes the talent of groundbreaking leaders in real estate.”
“The ULI NY Awards for Excellence in Development recognizes transformative projects that are helping communities to thrive while bringing innovative planning and design to New York state,” said John Gunther-Mohr Awards Committee Co-Chair and Senior Vice President of Santander Bank.

“I am honored to collaborate with industry experts and colleagues to highlight the best-in-class in urban development.”
Last month, ULI NY announced the selection of members of the Awards Committee and Awards Jury, which will manage the selection process, nominate the finalists, and oversee the gala. Jury members will conduct site tours of all finalists’ projects as part of their decision-making process.

The winners of the Second Annual Awards for Excellence in 2017 were 51 Astor Place (New York, NY), Navy Green (Brooklyn, NY), Tower280 at Midtown (Rochester, NY), The Kathleen Grimm School for Leadership and Sustainability at Sandy Ground (Staten Island, NY), The Delaware North Building (Buffalo, NY), The Hills on Governors Island (New York, NY), and The Beekman Hotel and Residencies (New York, NY).
