ULI Asia Pacific and ULI Australia have endorsed the Urban Innovation Ideas Initiative for Brisbane, 2016. The Initiative champions urban innovation, collaboration and youth leadership in the property industry.
The Initiative will be an ongoing focus of ULI and features a regular competition that explores solutions to topical and timely issues or projects relevant to successful urbanisation of our Cities. The Brisbane 2016 Urban Innovation Ideas Competition builds upon the success of the inaugural competition in Sydney in 2015.
The initiative will couple creative thinking by young professionals with judging from industry leaders and sector specialists to develop leading initiatives that connect capital and real estate to create value.
The Urban Innovation Prize will result in young professional teams having the potential to be selected to present their initiative at the 2016 ULI Asia Pacific Summit.
The 2016 competition is a platform for the next generation of property professionals to respond to a key strategic or topical issue facing urban development.
ULI have selected Brisbane as the location, with the competition seeking to improve the quality of the public interface between the Brisbane City Centre the Fortitude Valley neighbourhoods.
The goal of this year’s competition is to deliver Urban Innovations that could transform that interface into a connected, urban, active and sub-tropical place befitting a New World City.
The competition focuses on the importance of creating great urban places to add social, cultural, economic and ecological value.
The competition will aim to:
– Stimulate ideas on city making
– Provide a platform for under 35’s
– Promote ULI’s mission to “provide leadership in responsible land use”
– Remain consistent with ULI’s ongoing dedication to fostering tomorrow’s leaders
The competition will be run in two stages. Stage One is an open Ideas competition with a jury selecting finalists to enter into Stage Two. Stage Two is the Idea Development Stage, where entrants will be asked to further develop their ideas. Stage Two entrants will be offered engagement with industry leaders to assist in the development of their proposal.
