ULI names finalists in Excellence in Development competition

The Urban Land Institute New York announced the finalists for its 2016 Awards for Excellence in Development, a new event recognizing exemplary land use projects in New York that raise the bar for development, design, planning and sustainability.

The finalists represent a cross section of industry leaders across residential, commercial, mixed-use and civic space development.

Lieber, chairman of the Urban Land Institute New York.  “As creativity and sustainability are becoming more important than ever for overall success, these trailblazing projects are providing a model for both local counterparts and developers across the world.”
