Finalists Announced: D CEO’s 2023 Commercial Real Estate Awards

The competition was stiff and judging was difficult, but 99 projects, transactions, and dealmakers stood out.
By |

In a testament to an industry that keeps on growing and fueling DFW’s growth, D CEO received a record number of nominations for this year’s program. It wasn’t easy, but after culling through all of the nominations in our 11th annual Commercial Real Estate Awards, we have named finalists in all 21 categories.

Launched in 2013, D CEO’s annual program recognizes outstanding projects, deals, and industry players. The selected finalists represent many of the region’s largest transactions and developments but also several smaller deals that are poised to be game-changers in their industries or neighborhoods.

Winners will be revealed at an invitation-only event in March and featured in the April issue of D CEO.
