has been demonstrated with recognition through its awards programs, engagement with Detroit’s local officials and business community on major land use and urban develop- ment issues, and through the leadership of ULI Michigan in the city’s evolution. In 2013, Midtown Detroit was chosen as a winner of ULI’s Global Awards for Excellence, which is widely recognized as one of the land use industry’s most prestigious awards programs. In making the selection, the Awards Jury noted that Mid- town Detroit had emerged

as a symbol of a reimagined Detroit complete with new development, a focus on den- sity and walkability, and a growing, diverse population. Also that year, ULI convened an Advisory Service Panel of nationally renowned land use and urban development ex- perts to advise the Southwest Detroit Business Association on the economic development potential of a site along the West Vernor commercial cor- ridor, which has since been revitalized with shops and restaurants. continued on page 12B
