Malick Infill and LWP Group co-sponsored the winning student team for the Healthy Places Design and Development Competition. The competition which brought together students from business, architecture, planning, and engineering backgrounds, was hosted by the Urban Land Institute to teach students how to work together in a professional context. The competition brief asked students to design a Transit Oriented Development adjacent to the Buena Creek Sprinter Station. Students were asked to design a project that was financially feasible, aesthetically attractive and promoted healthy activities and lifestyle for its future inhabitants and users. This year’s participating universities included New School of Architecture and Design, Woodbury University, San Diego State University, and University of San Diego.
The students were presented their award last night where more than 250 leaders of the San Diego real estate industry attended the Healthy Places Award Gala hosted by the San Diego/Tijuana chapter of the Urban Land Institute. The event where Celebrity Chef Brian Malarkey prepared dinner for guests was honored to have Dr. Richard Jackson as Master of Ceremonies. The Healthy Places Awards recognizes real estate projects that support public health as a core component of thriving communities, design, and development. The students received $2500 for their winning entry.
