Hudson Commons Named Finalist in 2023 ULI Americas Awards for Excellence

Today, the Urban Land Institute announced the 20 shortlisted projects for the national awards program, including the KPF-designed adaptive reuse project in New York.

Following Hudson Common’s win in the Office Development category in the 2022 ULI NY Awards for Excellence, the building has been chosen as a finalist for the national honor. The LEED Platinum project transforms an eight-story podium and adds a 17-story tower above. Over 85% of the existing building’s envelope and structural elements were reused, and the project’s embodied carbon was minimized through the use of regional and recycled content. The majority of floors include a private terrace or balcony, while the double-height top floor opens onto a private landscaped area. A side core configuration and column-free interiors allow for expansive views of the surrounding city and water.

The Awards of Excellence program was established in 1979 by the Urban Land Institute and has come to be one most prestigious award programs in the real estate industry. Learn more and view all 20 finalists here.

Joining Hudson Commons on the shortlist is Water Street Tampa, a revitalization of the city’s Downtown that includes Heron. The KPF-designed residential building marks the beginning of the Riverwalk and engages the streetscape with an elevated tower perched on a sculptural tree column, in addition to an active retail podium.
