John DeWolf of The Howard Hughes Corporation and its development manager Peter Garver of Garver Development Group were awarded a ULI Wavemaker award for their catalytic transformation of the Rouse Building in Downtown Columbia, Maryland. Designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, it was built as a corporate headquarters in the 1970s. Today, the property is home to a bustling Whole Foods, a spa, and offices on a beautiful lakefront setting that is getting attention as the next great place for mid-Atlantic businesses to locate.

The Howard Hughes Corporation owns, manages and develops commercial, residential and mixed-use real estate throughout the country. The company is comprised of world-class master planned communities (like Columbia, Maryland), operating properties, development opportunities and other unique assets spanning 16 states from New York to Hawaii.

The company's master planned community business consists of the ownership, development and sale of property at four communities with over 14,000 acres of land remaining to be sold. These include Summerlin in Las Vegas, Bridgeland and The Woodlands in Houston, and Columbia, Fairwood and Emerson in Maryland. Dewolf was also named the 2014 Center Maryland Developer of the Year.

ULI, the Urban Land Institute, is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit research and education organization supported by its members. Founded in 1936, we now have more than 33,000 members worldwide, representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines working in private enterprise and public service.
