On September 27, 2018, the Urban Land Institute in Pittsburgh was pleased to honor Point Park University: The Academic Village and Pittsburgh Playhouse at our 6th Annual Placemaking Awards for Excellence held at the Omni William Penn. This fall awards event is our annual opportunity to formally recognize outstanding projects, achievements and leaders in our city who are committed to the creation and celebration of “place.” Over 200 commercial real estate professionals attended this signature event with ULI Pittsburgh, as we convened thought leaders from a wide array of disciplines who passionately promote the responsible use of land.
