The Urban Land Institute (ULI) announced the winners of its 2016 Global Awards for Excellence at its fall meeting in Dallas yesterday. The eleven winners, which include three projects in Europe, one project in Asia, and seven projects in North America, identify real estate development and land use best practices in an awards program that has run annually since 1979.
"Cities are about people—the way we interact, get around, and go about our daily routines," Steve Navarro, jury chair and executive vice president of CBRE, said in the ULI's release. "Great cities are made of great places that make the urban experience easy and enjoyable. These projects reflect the highest standards of design, construction, economics, planning, and management. But most important: they are improving people's quality of life."
"The Global Awards for Excellence showcase efforts that have both succeeded in pushing ingenuity and exemplifying best practices in land use across the globe," Patrick L. Phillips, ULI global chief executive officer, said in the release. "This year's winners have demonstrated a committed contribution to responsible real estate development and a dedication to building thriving, livable communities."
