Renewal Award – Houston Farmers Market, the oldest, largest and only daily farmers market in Houston, was honored for “leveraging its legacy.” It has reinvigorated an institutional destination by not only bringing it new life, but in keeping the history and community alive within its 17-acre site.
The project team included developer/owner MLB Capital Partners, Studio RED Architects and Clark Condon landscape architects, with finance partner Prosperity Bank.
Houston ULI sources said all of the finalist projects announced last fall following local evaluation had met the criteria for consideration in the annual Developments of Distinction program. These included Railway Heights Market, The Center for Pursuit Campus, Avenue Center, East Aldine District Office & Town Center Park, The Park at JP Morgan Chase and Woodchase Park.
Since 2008, more than 125 projects and public spaces have been recognized as Development of Distinction finalists and winners.
