PHILADELPHIA, PA—Urban Land Institute Philadelphia named seven Pennsylvania real estate projects, including five in Philadelphia, as winners of its 2015 Willard G. “Bill” Rouse III Awards for Excellence.
The award recognizes the best real estate projects completed within the last five years in Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, and Delaware. Nearly 30 submissions were reviewed by a panel of ULImembers from across the country.
The winning projects – which represent a variety of project types, including urban mixed-use, historic preservation, adaptive reuse, multipurpose entertainment, and institutional projects – were scored on use of best practices; quality planning and design; elements that build healthy places; environmental sustainability and energy reduction; economic success and market acceptance.
“This year’s winners and finalists represent some of the most innovative real estate developments in the region,” says Christopher M. Hager, P.E., chair of ULI Philadelphia. “The winners both this year and last year demonstrate how responsible land use has the ability to transform the built environment into something that revitalizes and reshapes our communities.”
The winners are:
Allentown Arena Complex, Allentown, PA
Arbor Heights, Norristown, PA
3737 Science Center, Philadelphia, PA
Chestnut Square, Philadelphia, PA
