Block 21, a project on which The Center served as LEED consultant, was featured in the piece "Slideshow: Austonian, Block 21 top ULI's list of winners," in the Austin Business Journal on Thursday, December 13, 2012. The article identified the properties that the Austin chapter of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) recently selected for its first Development of Distinction Awards; Block 21 won in the "new development commercial or mixed-use category." Block 21 is the property located at 200 Lavaca St., which includes the W Austin Hotel and The Residences at W Austin, as well as Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater, and various other commercial and business venues. Stratus Properties and Canyon Johnson Urban Fund II developed the property and The Center provided LEED consultation services; Block 21 has correspondingly received LEED for New Construction Version 2.2 Silver Certification. The Austin chapter of the ULI designed the Development of Distinction Awards to highlight the best local practices in land use and encourage similarly high quality development.
