West Don Lands, an industrial area currently being redeveloped as a mixed-use neighbourhood in Toronto’s downtown east end, was named one of thirteen winners in the Urban Land Institute’s 2017- 2018 ULI Global Awards for Excellence.
It was selected by an international jury made up of ULI members from a wide range of professional backgrounds who are recognized as leaders in their fields. According to ULI, while architecture and design are key components for all developments that have been recognized, winners are selected based on a broader set of criteria encompassing
the “full development process of a project.”
“The West Don Lands is Toronto urbanism at its best,” says ULI Toronto Executive Director Richard Joy. “Its evolution is a global showcase of city building that confirms our city’s reputation as a place that’s for and about the people it serves.”
