Denver Union Station has been named a winner of the 2015 Urban Land Institute Global Awards for Excellence competition.

Ten winners were selected from among a broad mix of projects around the world, including five in the United States, three in Europe and two in Asia.

“The result of a visionary collaborative effort, Denver Union Station brings an exemplary transformation of downtown through a complex mixed-use project,” says Michael Covarrubias, jury chairman for the ULI award. “The project not only makes progress ahead of the initial plan but already turns the rail yard into a viable community/work space.”

Now in its 37th year, ULI’s Global Awards for Excellence recognizes real estate projects that achieve a high standard of excellence in design, construction economics, planning and management. It’s viewed as the centerpiece of ULI’s efforts to identify and promote best practices in all types of real estate development.

A partnership between East West Partners, Continuum Parters, Union Station Alliance and Trammell Crow Co. developed the project.

“The ULI Global Award for Excellence is the most prestigious award in our industry and it is an incredible honor to have won for our work on the Union Station Neighborhood,” says Mark Smith, principal of East West Partners. “This award is in recognition of the extraordinary effort put forth by the entire Union Station team, as well as the impact that this project has had on the neighborhood and the entire city of Denver.”
