Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects honored by Urban Land Institute

Widely recognized as the land use industry’s most prestigious awards program, the competition rewards real estate developments for best practices in design, construction, economics, planning and management. Earlier this year, ULI selected 29 finalists from nearly 200 international entries before narrowing the winners to 14. In addition to good design, the award criteria include factors such as contribution to the community, innovations, environmental protection, response to societal needs, and financial success.

Developed by Boston Properties, The Avenue is an urban town center that connects George Washington University to the Foggy Bottom and West End neighborhoods. Adjacent to Washington Circle, the 1.4 million-square-foot development includes a 12-story apartment building and a 10-story LEED Gold-rated office building. Shops, restaurants, and a Whole Foods grocery store create a vibrant shopping street.
