Congratulations to our team of students receiving an honorable mention in the national Urban Land Institute Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition for their proposal, "Tech Town: Atlanta’s 24hr Living District," under the direction of Professor Simon Atkinson.
Team members included:
The ULI Hines Student Competition is an urban design and development challenge for graduate students. The competition engages multidisciplinary student teams to devise a comprehensive development program for a real, large-scale site. Teams of five students representing at least three disciplines have two weeks to develop solutions that include drawings, site plans, tables, and market-feasible financial data. The 2016 competition challenged student teams to design and submit a master-plan proposal for an area in Atlanta’s Midtown neighborhood.
Though based on a hypothetical situation, the 2016 Hines Student Competition reflects many real-life concerns of Atlanta. In recent years, the city has supported increased market demand for urban real estate products with strategies to attract investment in its urban core and along key commercial corridors.
