Award Guidelines

The Project of the Year award is determined by a selection committee of industry peers. Awards will be given for two categories - new ground up or redevelopment. Because last year's conference was postponed, awards will be presented for 2021 and 2022. The following criteria are used to evaluate entries:


  • A NAIOP Member in good standing whom demonstrates substantial participation in the project.
  • 2021 Entries must have broken ground or the project must have been completed between January 1, 2020, to December 31, 2020.
  • 2022 Entries must have broken ground or the project must have been completed between January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2021.
  • Submissions can be submitted for project category #1 new ground up and project category #2 re-development / adaptive re-use / re-purpose.
  • Project must have made a unique contribution to the economic growth and vitality of a region or community(e.g. job creators, a catalyst for surrounding economic development, creation of public infrastructure that would have otherwise not occurred).
  • Demonstrated unique design or innovation (is there a “cool factor”).
  • Ability to overcome design, regulatory issues, or other factors that challenged the project at various phases.
  • Provide photos/renderings of the project.
