The 17th annual ULI Hines Student Competition challenged students to create a comprehensive development proposal for an area in Cincinnati, Ohio, comprising portions of a highway, the central business district, and the central riverfront along the Ohio River. Teams were asked to consider options for decking the highway, Fort Washington Way, and to propose development adjacent to it. The challenge asked teams to illustrate innovative approaches to five general elements: 1) planning context and analysis, 2) a master land use plan, 3) urban design, 4) site-specific illustrations of new development, and 5) development schedule and finances.
