Annual Awards of Excellence Building Competition

The NAIOP Minnesota Awards of Excellence recognize exceptional developments by NAIOP members and their teams. Projects are reviewed by a panel of judges who tour each project in a given category and rate them on site development, architectural integrity, interior design, integration into the community, market feasibility, unique challenges and LEED certification or sustainable attributes.
