A SENSE OF PLACE AND QUALITY – The project reflects the special characteristics of the locality, community, and region in which it is located OR creates an inspiring environment that becomes an important anchor of the surrounding community. In addition, the project shall achieve a high standard of excellence in all areas – design, construction, economics, marketing, and management.
SUSTAINABILITY – The project must incorporate elements of sustainability such as being in a priority funding area (preferably a redevelopment or infill site), use of existing infrastructure, green technologies (building and/or site), use of alternative transportation methods, transit-oriented design, and addressing existing local neighborhood needs such as job training, employment growth, educational and recreational programs for all ages.
VISIONARY AND EMULATION – The project must step out from the norm, taking a concept to a brand new level that others will want to emulate.
