          2004 Student Awards Jury Comments

The goal of this project is to encourage diversity in every possible aspect of the redevelopment of the North Corktown neighborhood. Diversity is a force that has been proven to transform neighborhoods into strong, sustainable, and vibrant communities. Diverse communities, by their very nature, welcome people of any race, age, or economic status, contain integrated land uses, and possess ecologically diverse vegetative park systems. These complex sets of factors create a community’s unique sense of place. The suggestions for the North Corktown redevelopment aim at achieving a high level of social, economic, and spatial diversity. The recommendations presented will strengthen the community now and into the future.
