In partnership with the Brampton Downtown Development Corporation (BDDC), ULI Toronto is seeking entries for its second annual Urban Ideas Competition. This year’s competition is focused on ideas for rejuvenating and reinvigorating the downtowns of former small towns within the Greater Toronto Area, many of which have been transformed into large commuter suburbs.
Members of the public, architects, landscape architects, designers, planners, artists, students and members of the development community are invited to submit visionary ideas or design proposals to re-energize and rejuvenate the downtown of the City of Brampton. Anyone can participate but the team lead must be a ULI member. Bold ideas and practical solutions are encouraged.
The jury will be comprised of senior members of the real-estate development community.
Registration fees are $50 for a student member (team lead) and $100 – for those under 35 or an associate member (team lead). Only team lead needs to register the team.
The benefits of the competition are to: stimulate discussion about main street revitalization; network with other real estate community professionals; present to a jury of senior members; showcase your work to the public (in downtown Toronto and Brampton city centre); and compete for prize winnings totaling $6,000.
The registration deadline is March 20, 2015 and the deadline for the receipt of entries is April 2, 2015. Submissions will be displayed from April-May 2015, and the awards event will take place on April 22, 2015.
