On Sept. 16, members of the Atlanta real estate and development community gathered as ULI Atlanta hosted its 16th Annual Development of Excellence Awards Dinner. The event recognizes exceptional real estate developments and individuals across our region.
Former Mayor of Atlanta, Shirley Franklin took the Dan Sweat Community Leadership Award. The award honors a visionary from the non-profit or public sector who has advocated for responsible land use. Franklin was selected by ULI to receive this award because of her efforts to increase sustainable development in Atlanta and her work to overhaul the city’s sewer system.
The Frank Carter Community Achievement Award was granted to Don Childress of Childress Klein Properties. This honor is awarded in recognition of an outstanding contribution to Atlanta by an individual in the real estate or development field. Childress was honored for his vision to invest in Midtown when no one else saw its potential.
Development of Excellence Award winners included Piedmont Park’s Greystone, Hotel Indigo, White Provision and Southface.
From boutique retail space to multi-event space to hotels to commercial buildings, it seems that no matter where you look Atlanta is filled with outstanding developments.
