Ten awards are given out to projects throughout North America. The Urban Land Institute has been recognizing excellence in land use and development for the past thirty years.
By adopting land use policies that support development in specific transit-oriented areas, NYC has created thousands of new housing units, commercial and cultural space and acres of new open space.
The High Line, once an abandoned elevated rail line, is fast becoming one of the City's - and world's - most innovative new parks. The redevelopment of the abandoned elevated railroad structure has created a residential new construction boom on the far west side along the High Line and the Hudson river.
The High Line runs through three of Manhattans most dynamic neighborhoods, Hells Kitchen, West Chelsea and the Meat Packing District.
The park's first phase, which runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, is set to open by June of this year. The second phase, which runs from 20th Street and to 30th Street, is slated to open by the end of 2009.
