2016 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Stephen Owens, President, Swire Properties
This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award for our annual ULI Vision Awards will recognize Stephen Owens, President of Swire Properties. Under Steve’s leadership, Swire has played a central role in the urban development of Miami and South Florida for more than three decades. Steve’s responsibilities with Swire have included some $3 billion in projects throughout the States of Florida, Hawaii, Texas and Hong Kong. Here in South Florida, the complete master-planning and incremental build out of Brickell Key in downtown Miami, an island city within the city, beginning in the 1970s and now entering its final phase, represents a major mixed-use urban development that, in and of itself, would be the foundation a lifetime career achievement. Now add to this Steve’s steady leadership in carrying out Swire’s Brickell City Centre and we are witnessing the pinnacle of an extraordinary career and a special moment in the urban transformation of Miami: 5.4 million square feet of an extraordinary, complex, urban mixed-use project encompassing three city blocks, woven together with transit, underground parking and the sensational CLIMATE RIBBON™. One of the largest single mixed-use developments South Florida has seen, Brickell City Centre is destined to change the way Miamians live, work and play in the city’s increasingly prosperous residential and business district.
Join us in celebrating Mr. Owens as he accepts this prestigious award at the annual Vision Awards dinner event on September 22, 2016 at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami, from 5:30-8:30PM.
