Big thinkers and dreamers have shaped North Texas development since John Neely Bryan wandered into the area in 1839.
Last week, more than 700 gathered at an gala and soirée to celebrate vibrant, innovative projects that have a positive impact on the built environment in North Texas.
This was the Urban Land Institute of North Texas‘ second annual Impact Awards, held at the Hilton Anatole. The event recognized several people and companies, as well as honored the legacy of one of the world’s most influential couples in local real estate, Trammell and Margaret Crow.
“The Impact Awards have gained an enthusiastic following in North Texas, attracting those interested in celebrating vibrant, innovative projects that have a positive impact on the built environment in our region,” said Pamela Stein, Executive Director of the Urban Land Institute’s North District Council.
The ULI Impact Awards support transformative land use developments, best real estate practices, and creative visioning in the region. Owners, developers, architects, engineers or other professionals enter the awards, and are not required to be a ULI member to compete. Twenty-seven applications were submitted for the second annual awards competition.
The Vision Award went to Trammell and Margaret Crow, who transformed North Texas real estate during their lives. Crow family members accepted the award on their parents’ behalf, Harlan Crow, Lucy Billingsley, and Trammell S. Crow, all active in the real estate and environmental sectors. Clyde Jackson, chairman and CEO of Wynne Jackson, led informal, on-stage interviews of individuals, who knew, loved, and worked with Mr. and Mrs. Crow over the years.
