The ULI Hines Student Competition was extended to Europe in 2020 after 18 successful years in the US. It is part of ULI’s ongoing effort to raise interest among young people in creating better communities, improving development patterns, and increasing awareness of the need for multidisciplinary solutions to development and design challenges.
Gerry Hines, founder of the Hines real estate organization, created the competition with a generous endowment after he received the ULI Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development in 2002 and it was listed among his proudest accomplishments.
This is just one of the many legacies that Gerry Hines leaves behind for the wider industry.
Lars Huber, CEO of Hines Europe
“This is a sad day for the Hines family worldwide. Gerry instilled the values of integrity, innovation and quality which are part of our DNA to this day, and I am sure for generations to come. He was a pioneer of real estate, an inspirational leader and a real mentor to me throughout my career, as he was to so many others. He was instrumental in establishing Hines’ European platform and, along with the senior leadership team, I am proud to have counted on him as a colleague and friend. We will miss him.”
