The ULI Philadelphia Awards for Excellence honor the legacy of Willard G. “Bill” Rouse III, civic leader, developer, and a founder of ULI Philadelphia, with a long-term commitment from Liberty Property Trust.
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has set the standard in recognizing outstanding and transformational land use developments, best practices and creative visioning. ULI Philadelphia will honor the projects within the region with our 4th Annual Awards for Excellence, celebrating the legacy of the late ULI Philadelphia founder and civic leader Bill Rouse. Winning projects represent the highest standards of achievement in the development industry and advance the ULI mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.
ULI members and non-members are invited to submit applications for awards. Private sector, public sector, and nonprofit projects are all eligible for the ULI Philadelphia Awards for Excellence, ranging in project type and size – from housing to commercial to mixed use, from open space projects to land use policy initiatives. Each application will be evaluated by a panel of national leaders in the industry, highly experienced and deeply engaged ULI members from outside the region. Jurors will review how a development or initiative demonstrates leadership, innovation, market success, sustainability, resiliency, and meets the current and future needs of its surrounding community. Jurors will evaluate proposals based solely on information provided in the application itself. The jury is a national group of experts who are generally not familiar with the Philadelphia region and site visits are not part of the review process. Please keep this in mind when completing your application.
Projects must have been completed no earlier than March 1, 2012 and no later than January 1, 2017, and located within ULI Philadelphia’s geographic footprint covering Southeastern and Central Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware (eligible counties listed on the application). Finalist (non-winning) projects from previous years are also eligible under these same rules.
Projects must meet ULI’s mission to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide; achieve excellence in the use of best practices; demonstrate quality planning and design; incorporate elements that build healthy places (ULI’s global theme); promote environmental sustainability and energy reduction; achieve economic success and market acceptance; and meet community needs.
2017 Application Deadline has been extended to March 9, 2017
