Walter P Moore projects were recognized in nearly every category as 2020 Development of Distinction Award winners by the Urban Land Institute of Houston (ULI Houston) at a presentation on February 4, 2020, at The Rice Hotel Crystal Ballroom.

Midtown Park (pictured above), not only claimed top honors in the Open Space category but also took home the People’s Choice award. The 3-acre park and garage developed by Midtown Redevelopment Authority and elevated by landscape architect Design Workshop, has proven to be a frequented favorite since its opening. 

Jones on Main, which highlighted our firms’ forensic evaluation expertise, was also named the Heritage category winner.

“The second act of the renovated 700 block of Main Street is in full swing and better than its first. With the addition of contemporary amenities, such as Finn Hall, historical features such as the great banking hall, and multi-modal access, the property has become one of the hippest properties in downtown.”

Not-for-Profit Category: New Hope Housing and Star of Hope’s Cornerstone Community

Cornerstone Community® is a 48-acre cutting-edge, master-planned community. It includes Star of Hope’s Women & Family Development Center serving homeless single women and single-parent families with emergency residential care and long-term educational opportunities. The campus also features New Hope Housing Reed, an affordable rental housing complex that offers 187 apartments for formerly homeless families. This supportive housing community provides case management, educational and financial services, and life skills classes to help uplift families from generational poverty.”

For-Profit Large Category: Bank of America Tower

Bank of America Tower, downtown Houston’s latest high-rise office building, features a wide variety of first-class amenities including a light-filled triple-height space with next generation retail and unique restaurant concepts. The development offers its tenants as well as all of downtown Houston a gathering space to meet, collaborate and work outside the office.”
