In 2014, five MAPP graduate students clinched first place at the ULI Hines Competition, edging out 160 collegiate teams with their imaginative revitalization concept for the Nashville, Tn., neighborhood of Sulfur Dell. Of the five students, Rameez Munawar was the lone delegate from MAPP’s real estate program, a critical component to developing a concept that is cohesive with the market and that will deliver financially. Three years later, Rameez was back at ULI Hines—this time, on the other side of the jury table, a memorable experience he considers “an honor” to be a part of.
