Finalists Announced: D CEO’s Commercial Real Estate Awards

DFW saw record-breaking activity in 2015.

D CEO magazine has announced the finalists in its 2016 Commercial Real Estate Awards, which honors outstanding projects, deals, and industry players. Last year was a record-breaker for real estate activity in DFW—and the number and caliber of nominations we received reflected that.

The competition was fierce, but in the end, 53 finalists were selected for recognition in 16 categories. Winners will be revealed at a March 23 awards gala and featured in the April issue of D CEO.

This year, Herb Weitzman, chairman of The Weitzman Group, will be honored with the Pioneer Award. The retail guru—whose commercial real estate career spans more than 55 years—has been a driving force in the industry. Along the way, he has helped launched the careers of many of today’s top leaders.

Here’s a list of the other award contenders in this year’s program, listed in alphabetical order. Be watching D Real Estate Daily for profiles of all finalists leading up to the awards celebration next month.
