ULI North Florida is launching its 2016 Awards for Excellence Call for Entries. You can find the application and complete details HERE.
Entries for this esteemed award may come from across ULI North Florida’s District Council, which covers 34 counties from Flagler to Escambia, including Jacksonville, Gainesville, Tallahassee and Pensacola. The entry fee is $200 for Non-Profit/Public Sector projects and $500 for Private Sector projects. Entry deadline is August 30, 2016.
The annual Awards for Excellence program is the centerpiece of ULI’s efforts in North Florida to identify and promote best practices in all types of real estate development. The Awards recognize the full development process of a project from planning and construction to economic viability, management and design.
Winners in each of the five categories (New Development, Public Sector/Non-profit, Reuse/Repurpose, Downtown and Open Space) will be announced at an awards ceremony on October 11, 2016, to be held at Taliaferro Hall, St. John’s Cathedral in downtown Jacksonville.
In addition to the category winners, ULI North Florida will present the prestigious 2016 Visionary Leader award to Robert M. Rhodes, former Executive Vice President of St. Joe Company. Past recipients have included former Jacksonville Mayor John Delaney, president of the University of North Florida; Preston Haskell, founder of the Haskell Company; former ULI Chairman Peter Rummell; and Gunster shareholder, Lynn Pappas.
Submissions are open to real estate developments and programs that were completed in the past three years within ULI North Florida’s District Councils. Qualified submissions will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges from the local and national development community.
Winners of the 2015 Awards for Excellence were 220 Riverside for the Downtown Sector; College Town for Private Sector; Unity Plaza in the Public/Open Space Category; and the Jessie Ball DuPont Center received the Reuse/Repurpose Sector award.
