The Sheridan Station community has been honored as a finalist in the Urban Land Institute’s special 2016 Global Awards for Excellence, one of the industry’s most prestigious awards.
Sheridan Station is one of 26 developments from around the world that have advanced to the final stages of this award. The winning projects will be selected by an international jury of ULI members and announced in October at the organization’s gathering in Dallas.
“DCHA is honored to receive this illustrious nomination from the international real estate and development community,” said DCHA Executive Director Adrianne Todman. “We are very proud of the Sheridan Station community. As we continue to redevelop sites in the future, we will follow the same standards of excellence.”
“We are thrilled to be recognized by ULI for the success of Sheridan Station. The Global Award for Excellence is a prestigious international award, and the list of finalists includes projects from Europe, Asia and North America. Sheridan Station is the only project in the DC area to be selected as a 2016 finalist,” said W. Christopher Smith, chairman and CEO of WC Smith, development partners at Sheridan Station.
Prior to being named a finalist, Sheridan Station won the Juror’s Choice Award at the annual ULI Washington Real Estate Trends Conference’s Trends Awards. The awards highlight innovative developments in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area that demonstrate new ideas in projects, policies, and initiatives that enhance neighborhoods.
“[Sheridan Station] is a financial, environmental, and social success,” says Vicki Davis, president of Urban Atlantic and ULI member, in the award announcement video.
She highlights the 11 different funding streams that came together to build the community. She also spoke of the LEED platinum multi-family building within the community that holds the city’s largest solar panel array and a stormwater cistern. She applauded the fact that a wide range of households can live in the community – from 30 percent of the area median income to more than 200%.
“It is an inclusive project that serves the citizens of the District of Columbia and Ward 8 and is truly an asset to our city,” Davis said.
“A hallmark of ULI is to engage and to provide leadership while giving back to one's community,” said Steve Navarro, executive vice president, CBRE l The Furman Co., Greenville, South Carolina and ULI member. “One of our annual highlights is to recognize, through the Global Awards for Excellence initiative, some of the truly wonderful development projects that have been created in our communities. The candidate pool has grown each year with applicants reaching all parts of the world and representing numerous and varied product types. The finalists this year were all a joy to explore. Large and small, each represents best in class. When a unique and successful project transcends boundaries yet fits perfectly into its immediate community, it exemplifies what we all strive for and should be celebrated.”
