About the Award
ULI’s Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Awards, established in 2008 and named in memory of Jack Kemp, former secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, recognize exemplary developments that demonstrate creativity in expanding housing opportunities for America’s working families.
The Jack Kemp Awards honor developments that meet affordable and workforce housing needs and help to create mixed-income communities of opportunity. The award focuses on developments that serve households earning up to 120 percent of area median income (AMI).
South Quarter IV is the fourth and final phase of the redevelopment of an intersection in the Venture Village neighborhood of Minneapolis. The development includes The Rose, a 90-unit mixed-income building inspired by the Living Building Challenge, and the preservation of Pine Cliff, a 30-unit adjacent apartment building. Twelve units are reserved as supportive housing for homeless individuals and families. 68 units of affordable housing serve a range of income groups. Learn more.
