Congratulations to the Exploratorium and its new home at Piers 15-17 for being named a finalist for the Urban Land Institute (ULI) 2014 Global Awards for Excellence, widely recognized as the land use industry’s most prestigious recognition program. The Exploratorium was selected as one of 23 outstanding development projects from around the globe. From this select group, a jury representing the many fields of real estate development expertise will choose a group of winners that will be announced in October at ULI’s 2014 Fall Meeting in New York City.
“The 2014 Global Awards for Excellence finalists demonstrate high-quality, innovative land use and building design. In addition, many involve historic preservation, public-private partnerships, environmental sustainability, and creative financing,” said jury chair M. Leanne Lachman, president of real estate consulting firm Lachman Associates in New York, N.Y. “This group of diverse projects is a timely reminder of how thoughtful design plays a central role in community health and longevity."
Congratulations to the Exploratorium and all of the finalists.
