2023 University Challenge: The Results are In

April 21, 2023


Congratulations to the top 3 teams!

  1. University of Wisconsin-Madison | Project: Gold Medal Village
  2. University of St. Thomas | Project: Washington Ave Development
  3. University of Minnesota | Project: Millers Row

Student teams researched and pitched redevelopments for the 1100 & 1200 Washington Ave S in downtown Minneapolis. The teams had to address a development plan, construction timeline, budget, pro-forma, leasing plan and schedule, financing plan and market analysis.

Each of these student leaders is about to get their career underway! If you're on the hunt for that next great employee, you can view the teams' proposals and access the resumes of the student participants below.
