    ULI 2010 Urban Planning Competition

    Mike Taylor Jul 21 '10 0

    This semester I had the opportunity to work with a group of students from across SALA on the Gerald D. Hines/Urban Land Institute student urban planning competition. Other than in the introductory workshop at the beginning of the year this competition was the first time I had been able to work on a project with landscape students. It was really great to see what they learn in their first year and share best practices. This competition also presented the first opportunity to use some of the finance skills acquired in my undergrad to come up with the phased pro forma.

    This year’s challenge was to come up with a plan for developing several blocks in San Diego’s east end between Market and Broadway Streets, 11th Avenue and the I-5. We didn’t make it to the final rounds of the competition but the process was well worth it. Here are some details from our submission:
