CINCINNATI -- Ballpark Village, the dining and entertainment district situated across the street from Busch Stadium, has been named one of 25 finalists for the Urban Land Institute's Global Awards for Excellence. This award, established in 1979, recognizes "outstanding development projects on an international platform in the private, public and nonprofit sectors."

The Cardinals and The Cordish Companies collaborated on the planning and construction of Ballpark Village, which opened in 2014. It marked the first time that a professional sports venue was master planned and fully integrated into a broader mixed-use development.

Ballpark Village has attracted more than 10 million guests since opening, and it will soon be expanding. Over the offseason, the Cardinals and The Cordish Companies announced plans for a 550,000 square foot second phase that will include a residential towner, office space and additional retail restaurant and entertainment space. Construction on that $220 million phase is expected to begin later this year.

ULI will select a winner among these finalists during its October meeting in Los Angeles. The Cordish Companies have been awarded seven ULI Awards for Excellence, more than any other developer in the world.
