ULI Hines Competition Finals Comes to Cincinnati
The ULI Hines Student Competition—entering now its 17th year—offers graduate students the opportunity to form their own multidisciplinary teams and engage in a challenging exercise in responsible land use.
Student teams comprising at least three disciplines had two weeks to devise a comprehensive design and development program for a real, large-scale site full of challenges and opportunities. Submissions consisted of graphic boards and narratives that include designs, and market-feasible financial data.
The ULI Hines Student Competition is part of the Institute’s ongoing effort to raise interest among young people in creating better communities, improving development patterns, and increasing awareness of the need for multidisciplinary solutions to development and design challenges.
This competition is an ideas competition; there is no expectation that any of the submitted schemes will be applied to the site. The winning team will receive $50,000 and the finalist teams $10,000 each. All participating finalist students attend the all-expenses-paid final presentation in Cincinnati on April 4 to select the winner of the competition. Finalists include teams from MIT/Harvard, University of Texas-Austin and the University of Cincinnati.
The Hines Student Competition was created with a generous endowment from longtime ULI leader Gerald Hines, founder of the Hines real estate organization. Hines, who attended the competition’s finale, said, “I look forward to this competition every year, and to see these bright young people who come forth with outstanding ideas and projects. They are the future of the real estate industry.”
