Development Director Vincent Tong receives the Rose Center ULI Fall Meeting scholarship
Toronto Community Housing’s interim Development Director Vincent Tong won a scholarship from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) to attend the Rose Center ULI Fall Meeting, which took place in Dallas last month. Vincent attended the Urban Development and Mixed-Use Product Council, where he learned more about transforming developments and how he can apply this knowledge to development projects at Toronto Community Housing.
At the conference, ULI announced that Daniels Spectrum, the community arts and cultural hub in Regent Park, had been named as one of the 11 winners in 2016 of its prestigious Global Award for Excellence. The award—which is open to the entire industry, not just ULI members—recognizes real estate projects that achieve a high standard of excellence in design, construction, economics, planning, and management, and showcase best practices in responsible development and community building.
It’s the fourth time Daniels Spectrum has won an international award since it opened to the public in September 2012. Vincent represented Toronto Community Housing in accepting the award alongside our partners The Daniels Corporation, Artscape and Diamond Schmitt Architects.
