2016 Night of the Stars Awards Program

Honoring Outstanding Local Real Estate Projects and Companies

The nomination period is now closed.  Mark your calendars for the gala event on Friday, November 4, 2016 from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.  Gala tickets are on sale now!

The NAIOP Washington State Chapter’s Night of the Stars Awards Program is an annual gala dedicated to recognizing exceptional individuals and companies in our industry and the projects in which our members are involved. The goal is to identify 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. We encourage anyone on the extended project team to nominate projects, developers and deals and to engage the owner or sponsor and other team members in the process. The Night of the Stars Committee seeks to provide recognition for members of the entire project team and include them all in the annual celebration of the industry. 

About the Process

The Night of the Stars Awards Program uses a two-step nomination process. From June 1 to July 15, NAIOP Washington State solicits online for project and firm nominations. On August 12, finalists will be notified and receive their presentation day, time(s) and additional details. All finalists have the opportunity to make an in-person presentation to a panel of judges on the mornings of September 15 and 16 at the offices of GLY Construction in Bellevue. Presentations for each project/category will be limited to approximately 5 minutes.
