LONDON (18 May 2021) – The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has announced ten finalists in the 2021 ULI Europe Awards for Excellence for projects that exemplify best land use practice from across the EMEA region. Overall winners will be announced as part of an online ceremony in early July and will be automatically nominated for the 2021 ULI Global Awards for Excellence, which will be announced later this year.

The full list of finalists (in alphabetical order of project name with developers, owners and designers in parentheses where appropriate) are:


The members of the jury, who selected the finalists and will choose the overall winners for the EMEA region, are recognised leaders drawn from many areas of real estate expertise including commercial real estate, public sector, finance, architecture, land planning and development, and professional services.


The judging panel is chaired by Giancarlo Scotti, Chairman of GcS& Partners and a former Chair of ULI Italy, and the jury includes Clarissa Alfrink, Avison Young; Theodore Charagionis, Charagionis Group; Sigrid Duhamel, BNP Paribas REIM France; Manfred Guenterberg, Wolfsburg AG; Sophie Henley-Price, STUDIOS Architecture; Karolina Kaim, High Level Advisory; Tinka Kleine, PGGM; Vanessa Muscarà, Europa Capital; and Petran van Heel, Eteck Energy.


“The Urban Land Institute shapes the future of the built environment and it is our guiding principle that the achievement of excellence in land use practice should be recognised and rewarded,” said Marnix Galle, Chair of ULI Europe. “The EMEA region is home to many projects which push ingenuity and exemplify best practice in land-use, and we are happy to promote them so that the industry as a whole can continue to learn from each other and have transformative impact in communities worldwide.”


“It has been fantastic to see such a diverse range of projects all pushing the boundaries in terms of what can be achieved with carefully considered real estate initiatives,” added Giancarlo Scotti, chair of the 2021 ULI Europe Awards for Excellence Jury. “These ten finalists are leading the way in their respective categories and set an exemplar standard. This year, it has been an even more difficult task for the jury with projects designed and developed pre-Covid but, in operation, will experience a whole new reality which hasn’t even fully come through yet. The process to assess all of the projects that were submitted and to narrow them down to a shortlist has been very enjoyable – we look forward to selecting the winners.”


“We were very pleased to receive so many submissions for our ULI Europe Awards for Excellence competition, which were all to a very high standard,” said Lisette van Doorn, ULI Europe CEO. “The Awards for Excellence programme is very important for ULI, as it provides a way to gain recognition for our members for the great work they do and for others to learn from, when developing future real estate projects, especially at such an important yet uncertain point in time, when we know the future will be different from the past but it is not fully clear yet how we will live, work and play when the pandemic will be over.”


The ULI Europe Awards for Excellence recognises superior development efforts across the Europe, Middle East and Africa in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Projects and programmes are evaluated on the extent to which they:

  • achieve marketplace acceptance/financial success;
  • achieve a high standard of excellence in all areas—architecture, design, planning, construction, amenities, economics, and management, etc.;
  • demonstrate relevance to the contemporary and future needs of the community in which they are located;
  • have a positive impact in their communities and/or immediate context;
  • exhibit environmental sustainability, stewardship, and resiliency; and,
  • provide models, lessons, strategies, or techniques that other communities can replicate or adapt.

The jury will be selecting winners in the next few weeks and will also consider “special mentions” for those projects that demonstrate excellence in a particular area such as affordable housing, social value, climate change, resilience, sustainability, life sciences, repurposing, creative placemaking, arts & culture, community engagement, health & wellbeing, and smart technology.
