For decades, the Urban Land Institute has set the standard in recognizing outstanding real estate development projects, related programs, and visionaries in urban development. ULI’s awards programs are highly selective and provide a prestigious reference for professionals involved in the built environment. Winners and finalists benefit from worldwide recognition among influential leaders in fields related to real estate and urban development.
ULI recognizes a wide range of project types, sizes, and initiatives in its award programs—from housing to commercial and mixed-use development and new communities, from open spaces to policy initiatives, and both profit and nonprofit.
Projects are judged by teams of experts tailored to the requirements of each awards program. These multidisciplinary groups of experts typically include developers, planners, architects, public officials, community representatives, and other professionals as required by the award criteria.
