LONDON (February 5, 2008) - The Financial Times and the Urban Land Institute have extended the entry deadline to March 31, 2008 for submissions to the Financial Times Urban Land Institute (FT ULI) Sustainable Cities Award.

The FT ULI Sustainable Cities Award has global relevance since nominations will be invited worldwide. The announcement of up to seven winners will be the closing highlight of a sustainable cities conference that will be jointly hosted by the Financial Times and the Urban Land Institute in London on June 16, 2008. Attendees will look at innovative solutions in the design, construction, and management of real estate development that does not threaten the conditions of future city and world urban systems.

The Sustainable Cities Award acknowledges exceptional examples of sustainable land use models that exhibit significant new ideas and perspectives for future practice, rather than simply celebrating past achievements. The winning initiatives will demonstrate state-of-the- art contributions in advancing the market's understanding and acceptance of the concept of sustainability in real estate. This may be reflected in economic and social as well as environmental sustainability. Nominations should be able to demonstrate financial viability as well as replicability and a capacity to inspire others. The Awards will recognize real estate programs in corporate strategic programs, public agency initiatives, non-governmental organization programs and private development company initiatives.

Details of the initial award eligibility, the composition of the Jury and the judging criteria is available at
