ULI New York Awards for Excellence in Development

Update: The deadline for nominations has been extended to November 15!


Awards to Honor Outstanding Projects Statewide in Categories of Office, Housing, Mixed-Use, Repositioning or Redevelopment, Hotel, Retail, Institutional, and Civic Space.

Urban Land Institute New York today announced it has opened nominations for its Second Annual Awards for Excellence in Development, a statewide contest that sets the standard for responsible land use and development practices. Developers and architects in the public, private and non-profit sectors are all encouraged to submit projects for New York’s top real estate industry competition. You do not have to be a ULI member to submit a project.

The Awards for Excellence in Development recognize leaders who demonstrate the strongest commitment to planning, design, sustainability and resilience, market success and community impact. The Awards categories include office, housing, mixed-use, repositioning or redevelopment, hotel, retail, institutional, and civic space. The new hotel and retail categories were added this year to recognize the growing number of innovative projects in these areas across the state.

“As developers face the challenges of a changing state and industry, the Awards for Excellence in Development will keep raising the bar for responsible land use in New York,” said Marty Burger, Chairman of ULI New York. “We look forward to recognizing projects representing the best of the industry and its role in strengthening communities and building our economy.”

Starting today, developers can download an Awards submission form and apply online at http://nygala.uli.org/apply/. The nomination period will run from September 12 to November 15, at which time all submissions are due. Finalists in each category will be announced in January and winners will be honored at an industry gala on April 3, 2017 at Gotham Hall in New York City.

The nomination process and Awards gala will be overseen by ULI New York’s 23-member Awards Committee, which is led by co-chairs Brian Collins, Head of Development at Fisher Brothers, and David Schonbraun, co-CIO of SL Green Realty Corp. Winners will be selected by ULI New York’s Awards Jury, which will conduct comprehensive site visits to review all finalists’ projects. The 12-member Awards Jury includes an elite group of developers, urban planners, architects and business leaders. A full list of the Awards Committee and Jury can be found at http://nygala.uli.org/about-the-awards/.

“As long as developers keep innovating, New York will keep growing — and we are committed to advancing those positive impacts statewide,” said Brian Collins, ULI New York Awards Committee Co-Chair and Head of Development at Fisher Brothers. “The Awards represent an important opportunity for real estate leaders who understand the future of our industry and want to make sure it benefits New Yorkers for generations to come.”

“We know that outstanding development is happening in all corners of our state, and we are ready to put the spotlight on elite projects from Brooklyn to Buffalo,” said David Schonbraun, ULI New York Awards Committee Co-Chair and Co-CIO of SL Green Realty Corp. “This is a truly exciting time for land use and urban planning across the nation and the world – but it all starts here in New York.”

The winners of the inaugural Awards in March 2016 were Hunter’s Point South Living, the No. 7 Line Extension Project, the East Harlem Center for Living & Learning, St. Ann’s Warehouse, the September 11 Memorial Museum & Pavilion, Brookfield Place, and Conventus.
