This is a part-time, paid, non-exempt internship, based in Washington, D.C., although ULI is currently working remotely due to the pandemic.
Entry Title: The KC Knot
Team Code: 2021-2664
School: Carnegie Mellon University
The KC Knot envisions an East Village that embraces socioeconomic and racial diversity, encourages sustainable transportation, and supports equitable job growth and innovation. A series of complete street axes weave together communities that have been historically segregated by redlining and automobile-oriented development, creating a fertile ground for next-generation life science research and enterprises to take root. Altogether, the KC Knot lays the groundwork for the next generation of equitable economic development in downtown Kansas City.
Jury Comments: The jury admired the team’s long term vision and clear mission statement, which addressed old physical and racial divides. They particularly appreciated the focus on multimodal transportation.
