The Best Downtown Revitalization Projects of 2010

Urban Land Institute's Award for Excellence winners include projects in Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C.

The three revitalization projects varied in their method of completion, but ULI maintains they did not in terms of outcome and success. The projects are:

  • Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas
  • Columbia Heights revitalization in Washington, D.C.
  • L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles

Theodore Thoering maintains, "all three neighborhoods have become vibrant destinations and economic engines for their respective cities."
