The Boucicaut Eco-Neighborhood spans some three hectares across Paris’s 15th Arrondissement in a densely populated residential and family-oriented neighborhood. The city of Paris has set out to reclaim this space by creating a fully pedestrian neighborhood that offers high environmental quality and a commercial space, and is respectful of both the architectural and landscaped legacy left by the site and the philanthropic spirit of Marguerite Boucicaut, its original benefactor. The Global Award winners will be announced in October at the ULI Fall Meeting in San Francisco. http://on.uli.org/1KNhAeQ

The San Francisco neighborhood, Hayes Valley, came to prominence in the wake of the 1989 earthquake with the City and the neighborhood collaborating on the Market & Octavia Area Plan. The Plan envisioned a balance of market rate and affordable housing, and paved the way for the innovative temporary uses and interactive community spaces that developed on former central freeway lots.

After four decades in Stockholm’s city center, Swedbank had outgrown its headquarters. It wanted a new building that embraced the working methods and technology associated with banking in the 21st century and reinforced its brand as an innovative financial institution. This Global Awards for Excellence finalist’s design reinforces the new ethos of “one office space, one company” making the bank’s many different departments feel like a cohesive whole. The Global Awards winners will be announced in October at the ULI Fall Meeting in San Francisco. http://on.uli.org/1NIAbf1

San Francisco’s Eastern Waterfront exemplifies the city’s global position and history of repeated economic transformations. Decades of planning, transactions and site work, spanning several business cycles, are finally closing the chapter on 160 years as the rough-and-tumble “Gateway of the Pacific”.

Providing leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.
Introduction

The mission of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.

ULI is committed to

  • Bringing together leaders from across the fields of real estate and land use policy to exchange best practices and serve community needs;
  • Fostering collaboration within and beyond ULI's membership through mentoring, dialogue, and problem solving;
  • Exploring issues of urbanization, conservation, regeneration, land use, capital formation, and sustainable
    development;
  • Advancing land use policies and design practices that respect the uniqueness of both the built and natural environments;
  • Sharing knowledge through education, applied research, publishing, and electronic media; and
  • Sustaining a diverse global network of local practice and advisory efforts that address current and future challenges.

Established in 1936, the Institute today has nearly 30,000 members worldwide, representing the entire spectrum of the land use and development disciplines. ULI relies heavily on the experience of its members. It is through member involvement and information resources that ULI has been able to set standards of excellence in development practice. The Institute has long been recognized as one of the world's most respected and widely quoted sources of objective information on urban planning, growth, and development.
