Pioneer Blvd an honoree for The Structures Awards
The Structures Awards has long been a signature event for the South Florida Business Journal. In past years, it has reflected both the robust scope of development across the region, and the individuals and companies that are driving billions of dollars in transformational new construction and refurbishment of existing properties.
The past 18 months have only accelerated the scope and scale of work. Investment and innovation have touched every category, from single-family and multifamily residential to commercial, retail, office and industrial projects. What they share is attention to unique market needs. We’ve witnessed an aggressive push to deliver vital workforce and affordable housing, Class A office space in growing business submarkets, dynamic retail projects, reuse/rehab and community impact concepts that are changing our marketplace, and architectural designs that continue to position South Florida as a unique global destination.
This year’s honorees for Dealmaker of the Year and Developer of the Year reveal how creative the region’s real estate professionals have been in meeting local needs. They’ve repurposed historic neighborhoods and corporate campuses, and made real their visions for transformative change to keep up with market demand.
One significant change to this year’s event is the inclusion of 10 Terry Stiles Deals of the Year. So many remarkable transactions have occurred that the editorial team struggled to keep to the traditional list of three. Instead, we highlighted 10 deals from the past year – and even that was a struggle.
The pandemic changed many communities and regions nationwide. While others struggled with the outflow of people, businesses and tax revenues, South Florida was challenged to keep pace with the growth. As we’ve seen with this year’s Structures honorees, the challenge was accepted, and we’re all better for it.
The Structures Awards winners and finalists were feted on Sept. 22 at Jungle Island. The event was presented by Comcast Business, with corporate sponsors Berkowitz Pollack Brant Advisors + CPAs; FPL Energy Services, a NextEra Energy company; SouthState Bank and Stiles.
