Urban Land Institute New York seeks project nominations

Rochester Business Journal
September 13, 2016

Urban Land Institute New York has opened nominations for its second annual Awards for Excellence in Development, a statewide contest for responsible land use and development practices.

Developers and architects in the public, private and nonprofit sectors can submit projects. They are not required to be a land institute member to submit a project.

Rochester-area developers are encouraged to submit their projects for consideration, the institute said.

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 projects in these areas across the state.

Developers can download an awards submission form and apply online at
The nomination period runs through Nov. 4, at which time all submissions are due. Finalists in each category are slated to be announced in January, and winners are to be honored April 3 at Gotham Hall in New York City.
