Urban Leadership Award Dinner

Dear Friends of the NYUSPS Schack Institute,

The NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS) Schack Institute of Real Estate is pleased to invite you to the 47th Annual Urban Leadership Award Dinner, to be held on Monday, June 4, 2018 at the Mandarin Oriental, New York.

We are delighted to share that MaryAnne Gilmartin, co-founder and chief executive officer of L&L MAG, will be honored with this year’s Urban Leadership Award. Through her extraordinary record of industry and civic leadership, MaryAnne has made an indelible mark on the real estate profession and the New York City skyline. Prior to founding L&L MAG, MaryAnne served as President & CEO of Forest City Ratner Companies, where she oversaw the development of Barclays Center, the centerpiece of Pacific Park Brooklyn; the New York Times Building; New York by Gehry; and, the Tata Innovation Center at Cornell Tech. Among her many civic contributions, MaryAnne is Chair of the Board of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, member of the Executive Committee of the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Vice Chair of New York Public Radio, and a member of the Board of Governors of the Real Estate Board of New York.

Established in 1971 by Larry Silverstein, Chairman Emeritus of the Schack Institute Advisory Board and our 50th Anniversary Chair, the Urban Leadership Award recognizes members of the industry who have made exceptional contributions to the prestige of the real estate sector and the communities in which they develop and invest. It is the highest honor conferred by the Schack Institute. Proceeds from the dinner support critically important scholarship and financial aid programs at the Schack Institute, as well as a range of special initiatives.
