D CEO magazine has revealed the finalists in its 2015 Commercial Real Estate Awards program, which honors outstanding projects, deals, and industry players. Last year was a big one in the market, and the competition was fierce.

In the end, 51 finalists were selected for recognition in 15 categories. Winners will be revealed at a March 24 awards gala and featured in the April issue of D CEO. (Tickets are no longer available; the event has sold out.)
