Two Projects Win Urban Land Institute Awards

In June, The Urban Land Institute of Philadelphia recognized two projects Ground Reconsidered collaborated on with Awards of Excellence at the 4th Annual Willard G. “Bill” Rouse III Awards. The plazas and amenity roof garden at FMC Tower at Cira Centre South (left) and the playground, sprayground, rain garden and streetscape at the South Philadelphia Community Health and Literacy Center (right) were designed by Ground Reconsidered.

Criteria for the awards include innovation in planning and design, including adaptability to other communities, sustainability, economic success, overall community health and social impact to address neighborhood revitalization goals. An independent and national panel of jurors, including leaders in real estate, land use and development from across the country, were tasked with selecting the highest quality projects.
