|NAIOP Minnesota hosts its annual Awards of Excellence in January of each year.
The NAIOP Awards of Excellence, presented each year, recognize exceptional new and renovated office, industrial, mixed-use and special purpose developments in the state.
Projects are eligible for entry in categories including: office build-to-suit; office multi-tenant; downtown office new development; single story office/office-flex; industrial build-to-suit; industrial bulk distribution; light industrial/low finish; light industrial/high finish; repositioned/renovated; special purpose; and mixed-use.
A group of judges, representing a cross-section of developers, general contractors, mortgage bankers, brokers and architects, tour the projects in each category before casting their votes. Projects are judged on criteria including site improvements and design, architectural integrity, market feasibility and project success, as well as the judges' overall impression of the property.
Projects may be entered by any member of the project team, provided that they are a current member of NAIOP.
