D CEO magazine has announced the finalists in its 2017 Commercial Real Estate Awards program, which honors outstanding projects, deals, and industry players. Last year was an outstanding one for real estate activity in DFW—and the number and caliber of nominations submitted to the publication reflected that.
The competition was especially fierce but, in the end, 55 finalists were selected for recognition in 16 categories. Winners will be revealed at a March 29 awards gala and featured in the April issue of D CEO.
his year John Crawford, the former president and CEO and now vice chairman of Downtown Dallas Inc., will be honored with the Pioneer Award. More than $5 billion of investment has been made in downtown Dallas since Crawford became the nonprofit’s president and CEO in 2007, while the area’s retail absorption has increased by 20 percent and the downtown residential population has grown by more than 185 percent.
