Charities Housing is proud that San Antonio Place was as a semi-finalist for the Terner Prize and shares this excerpt from the Award Letter:

Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that your team was one of fourteen semi-finalists for the Terner Prize. You did not make it to the top six finalists, however. The status of semi-finalist was quite an accomplishment because the jury received 82 submissions from all over the country.  Our fine jury is comprised of David Baker of David Baker Architects in San Francisco, Elinor Bacon in DC, J. Michael Pitchford, President & CEO, Community Preservation & Development Corporation in DC, Greg Maher of Local Initiatives Support Corporation in New York, John King with the San Francisco Chronicle and Geoffrey Wooding of Goody Clancy in Boston.  They spent many hours reviewing the submissions.

The jurors and staff where amazed and touched by the high quality of submissions and all the level of work that is being done throughout the country, urban to rural, homeless to mixed income, rehab to new construction with a host of services for residents and wide spread impact on surrounding communities. Your team joins this list of the eight semi-finalists:

Charities Housing Development Corporation; Mountain View, CA
Charlotte- Mecklenburg Housing Partnership, Inc.; Charlotte, NC
The Doe Fund, Inc.; Brooklyn, NY
Durkee, Brown, Viveiros & Warenfels Architects; Providence, RI
Harley Ellis Devereaux; Chicago, IL
McCormack Bacon Salzar, Inc.; St. Louis, MO
New Hope Housing; Houston, TX
Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation; San Francisco, CA

The Jury is conducting site visits this month and will select the Prize winner during deliberations in December.  We have decided to schedule the Prize luncheon on January 31,2007 Washington DC prior to the Urban Land Institute Trustees and Leadership meeting. We also have decided to organize a symposium that morning so that we can take advantage of a gathering of leaders in the affordable housing field to share best practices.  We hope you are able to join us in Washington for the Symposium.

Thank you for your submission and again, congratulations on becoming a semi-finalist!
