UDI Awards for Excellence celebrate best of B.C. development

At the 30th anniversary of its biennial awards on Wednesday night, November 26th, the Urban Development Institute Pacific Region (UDI) announced the winners of the 2014 UDI Awards for Excellence.

“The UDI Awards are the premier form of peer recognition for B.C.’s real estate development industry,” said Anne McMullin, president and CEO of the Institute. “This year’s record number of exceptional submissions had the jury deliberating at length to identify the top achievers for each category.”

The winning projects and their respective development teams were awarded based on sustainable building and landscape features, innovative design, marketing success, as well as integration with transit and community context.

More than 700 people attended the black tie gala, celebrating achievements across a range of categories that included Best Heritage, Best Affordable, Best Urban Infill and Best in Show among the honours. In addition, four distinguished industry leaders, Keith Beedie, Milan Ilich, Robert H. Lee and Joe Segal, were inducted into the UDI Hall of Fame, while the Maureen Enser Award went to Wesgroup Properties’ Beau Jarvis. The night also revealed the winner of The Vancouver Sun Readers‘ Choice Award for Best Residential High-Rise as Private Residences at the Hotel Georgia by Delta Land Development.
