ULI Nashville News




Because Nashville will be hosting ULI’s annual Spring Meeting April 16 – 18, 2019, ULI Nashville will take a year off from its annual Excellence in Development Awards and will not conduct an Awards program in 2019.

Instead, in 2020, we will return with the Awards program and a ULI Nashville Excellence in Development Awards gala.

Stay tuned for announcements!

Register for 2019 ULI Spring Meeting here.

The 2018 Excellence of Development Awards gala reflected ULI Nashville’s commitment to community and livability, valued partners and members, and excellence in development, design, and place-making.

The ULI Nashville Excellence in Development Awards represent the mission that strong communities, good development partners, and excellence in development and design should be recognized and best practices shared.

The Urban Land Institute Nashville District Council has awarded eight Middle Tennessee projects with Excellence in Development awards — with 1201 Demonbreun, Bridgestone Tower, Hill Center Brentwood, Lifeway Corporate Headquarters and Station 40 winning in the private sector–large project category.

More than 650 members and guests gathered for ULI Nashville’s 10th annual awards event Tuesday night at the Omni Nashville Hotel, according to a release. The awards recognize excellence in land use, development, design and construction. Additionally, the awards honor collaboration among development team members.

There were 17 entries this year, including a 1930s neighborhood church transformed for creative office space, an abandoned bowling alley converted to a dialysis center, new high-rise corporate headquarters and an interpretive center for a historic site. The eight winning projects represent private, public and non-profit sectors.
