The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has selected 27 developments as finalists in the 35th annual ULI Global Awards for Excellence competition. The competition—which honors real estate projects that achieve a high standard of excellence in design, construction, economics, planning, and management—is the centerpiece of ULI’s efforts to identify and promote best practices in all types of real estate development.

“From an impressive array of submissions, ULI’s Global Awards jury selected 27 outstanding projects, each of which positively impacts its larger community—sometimes modestly, but often massively,” said jury chairman M. Leanne Lachman, president of real estate consulting firm Lachman Associates LLC in New York City. “The finalists span the globe, from South America to Asia, from North America to Europe, and we are particularly happy to share that diversity. All projects exhibit innovations in design, sustainability, adaptability to their surroundings, financial solidity, and provision of enjoyment to their many users. In one way or another, each finalist wowed the jury, which will make selection of the winners a real challenge.”
