Waterloo Park Receives ULI Austin Impact Award For Best Public Place!
ULI Austin’s annual Impact Awards are an opportunity to recognize and celebrate projects and people throughout the greater Austin area that exemplify ULI’s mission: to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in communities worldwide.
Since re-opening to the public last summer, after being closed for construction for almost ten years, Waterloo Park has welcomed tens of thousands of visitors to explore nature, gather with friends and family, and immerse themselves in musical, cultural, and performing arts experiences.
In total, four WGI projects were nominated for a 2022 Impact Award within the categories of Most Influential Project, Best Project Innovation, Best Project Design, Best Public Place, and Next Big Idea. Two of those projects, Travis County North Campus & Travis Flats, and Waterloo Park moved on to become finalists, with Waterloo Park bringing home the big win for the night!
WGI shares in congratulating all of the partners who were involved in this transformational project: The City of Austin, Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. (MVVA), dwg., Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, AEC, EEA, DPR Construction, Clean Scapes, and Peabody General Contractors!
