ULI NY to Honor Larry Silverstein with Leadership Award

By Betsy Kim | Globe St.

NEW YORK CITY—The Urban Land Institute New York will honor Larry A. Silverstein, chairman of Silverstein Properties, as the recipient of its first Visionary Leadership in Land Use Award. It recognizes Silverstein’s impact in the industry and region and his commitment to ULI’s mission and values.

ULI NY is a non-profit organization whose website states it provides leadership in the responsible use of land and in the creation of sustainable, thriving communities. Its stated goals include promoting an open exchange of ideas, information and experience among industry leaders and policy makers.

“From his perseverance in rebuilding the World Trade Center site and helping spearhead the revitalization of Lower Manhattan, to pioneering sustainability in commercial office buildings, to developing state of the art residential buildings on W. 42nd Street, Larry’s commitment to responsible development is a model for the 21st century developer,” says Steven Kohn, chairman of ULI NY.

“This honor is in large part a result of my efforts rebuilding the World Trade Center,” says Silverstein. “It has certainly been the passion of my life.  But it has been a collective effort involving thousands of people. Many members of the Urban Land Institute, and others in our industry, put their hearts and souls into the rebuilding effort.”

At the event, ULI will also announce winners of its Fourth Annual Awards for Excellence in Development in nine categories. The gala will be held on April 4 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at 583 Park Ave. in Manhattan.
