SEATTLE – Announced today, finalists for NAIOP Washington State’s 2016 Night of the Stars Awards include dozens of well-known commercial real estate players, breakthrough deals and important development projects. 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.

Each project was evaluated for impact on the community, market adaptability, ingenuity and local contributions. Winners will be announced at the November 4 gala event at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.

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, Blake Eagle will be inducted into the NAIOP Hall of Fame for his contributions to the commercial real estate community during his years heading Frank Russell Company’s real estate consulting group. Blake is credited with opening institutional investing in real estate and is the founder of the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF). From 1971 through 1993, he headed Frank Russell Company’s real estate consulting group, which invested more than $18 billion in real estate. Prior to joining Russell, he was a real estate developer.

This year, for the first time, NAIOP supporters and the community at large will be asked to weigh in on the Community Impact Project of the Year. In addition to the judges’ review, online voting will help determine the winner. Online voting will go live in October and will be announced in our weekly email newsletter and on Twitter.
