LOS ANGELES—The Ziman Center at UCLA’s Anderson School of Business has won the Silver Shovel Award at the annual NAIOP SoCal Real Estate Challenge. Five-member graduate student teams from UCLA and the Lusk Center at USC’s Marshall School of Business competed to win the award by submitting proposals for a 21-acre development site in Costa Mesa, CA. The event was hosted by CT Realty CEO and president James “Watty” Watson, and welcomed 300 guests to watch the presentations.

“Each year, the challenge brings out the best in these students. It’s exciting to see what they propose, and this year we had a great site for them to study,” Angela Azizian, senior director at GE Capital and the committee chair for the Real Estate Challenge, tells GlobeSt.com. “The Real Estate Challenge is an important event for NAIOP SoCal as it represents our commitment to encouraging the next generation of real estate leaders and celebrates what makes this industry so dynamic.”
