Get to Know NAIOP’s 2017 Hall of Fame Inductee: Douglas Howe

Be humble and always be flexible.

Douglas Howe headshotAnyone who knows Douglas Howe knows that his charismatic personality, dedication to his craft and keen business sense have made his success what it is today. His passion to develop buildings that make a positive impact on the built environment, his humility and the ardent viewpoint that he’s a student of his field even after forty years are also hallmarks of his tenure—one that’s made a significant difference to the Seattle urban core and the Puget Sound region.
