SEATTLE – Announced on Friday, November 3, at the annual gala, NAIOP Washington State’s 2017 Night of the Stars Awards highlight the Northwest’s highly competitive development environment. Seattle tops national crane counts and available land is scarce; tenants require sustainability, from salmon-safe buildings to indoor forests, and the community requires accommodations for increased housing and growing industry. The winners represent how the development community continues to find creative, sustainable solutions to fit the needs of the growing and maturing Puget Sound market.

Each year, NAIOP’s Night of the Stars identifies outstanding real estate developments and activities in a variety of market types and the individuals who conceived of, took risks, sponsored, supported and made the projects happen. The awards aim to honor entire teams, including all who contributed to the project’s success in this annual celebration of the industry. Projects are evaluated for impact on the community, market adaptability, ingenuity and local contributions. All nominations and winners are viewable via the new NAIOP WA app, which is designed to transform how the Northwest commercial real estate community networks.

In addition to nominated projects, each year, an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the industry is selected for induction into the NAIOP Washington State Hall of Fame. This year, Douglas Howe joins the ranks of the vaunted for his contributions to Seattle and the Northwest’s built environment, as well as to the NAIOP organization. As founder and Chief Executive Officer of Touchstone, Douglas built a reputation developing commercial office, biotechnology R & D, retail and hotel properties that make a positive impact on the built environment—whether restoring historical landmark structures or constructing award winning, architecturally distinctive new buildings. Currently, Douglas is Governor of the NAIOP Research Foundation; he served as Chairman of NAIOP in 2009 and as President of NAIOP Washington State in 2004. Read more about Douglas Howe.
