ULI began the Awards for Excellence program in 1979 to recognize truly superior development efforts in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Winning projects represent the highest standards of achievement in the development industry—standards that ULI members deem worthy of attainment in their professional endeavors. Today the real estate and land use industry widely recognizes the ULI Global Awards for Excellence as one of its most prestigious awards programs.
The Awards for Excellence recognize the full development process of a project, not just its architecture or design—although these elements play an important role.
The Awards recognize both development projects and programs. Among projects, the Awards recognize a wide variety of product types, including office, residential, retail, industrial, hotel, mixed use, planned community, open space, and more. Programs are initiatives, processes, or policies that guide or enhance development.
A jury of ULI members chooses finalists and winners. Members of the jury are leaders who represent a broad geographic diversity and many areas of real estate and land use expertise, including finance, planning, development, public affairs, design, and professional services, among others.
Since 2012, the ULI Global Awards for Excellence have honored development projects and programs from around the globe in a single competition. Since 2021, projects and programs must first enter a regional award program. That means the ULI Awards for Excellence in the Americas, Europe, and Asia Pacific regions serve as the first round for the 2022 ULI Global Awards for Excellence. Winners from the regional programs become finalists in the global awards.

ULI Annual Fund
ULI’s awards programs are one of the primary reasons ULI serves as a global repository of best practice and innovation in real estate and land use. Donations supporting our awards are critical to ULI’s ability to identify and highlight best practice and innovative happening around the world. Contributions ensure the Awards programs not only can recognize winners but also can translate the information into learning opportunities and content to inform the work of ULI members and the public – from ULI Case Studies to research reports to webinars to ULI Learning courses and more.
Donors can choose to designate their contribution specifically to “Student Awards and Programs”, ensuring that their gift is personally meaningful, or make an unrestricted donation with the assurance that it will be applied to meet ULI’s greatest needs.
