Local developments up for ULI awards

Urban Land Institute is considering nominations of several neighborhood development projects for awards at its inaugural Awards for Excellence program in early October.
Awards will be given in the downtown, private sector and public sector categories.
Among those local projects up for awards are: The EverBank headquarters relocation from Brooklyn to downtown Jacksonville; San Marco Place; Kings Avenue Station; the Friendship Park and fountain renovation; and the Riverside Arts Market.
Through the awards program, ULI hopes to identify and promote best real estate development practices.

The winners will be announced and recognized Oct. 4 at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Local and national judges included Don Shea, Jacksonville Civic Council; Dave Hammers, retired developer in London and U.S.; ULI Senior Fellow and former Mayor of Pittsburgh Tom Murphy; Tim Becker, Director of the Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies, University of Florida; and Ellen Dunham-Jones, author and professor of architecture at Georgia Tech.
“It is important for us to honor those who work hard to make a difference in our community,” said Bruce Johnson, chair of ULI North Florida. “ULI recognizes distinguished leaders and distinctive projects worldwide, and we are looking forward to honoring those here in North Florida.”
