Four days. That’s how long it took the editors of D CEO to pore over the hundreds of nominations in our annual Commercial Real Estate Awards and select this year’s winners and finalists. It wasn’t just the volume of entries that made it such a challenge; it was the caliber of the nominations, and the impact the projects, deals, and industry professionals are having on our economy. Dallas-Fort Worth has a national reputation for its commercial real estate prowess, and it’s easy to see why.
Even after riding a decade-long boom, 2019 was a banner year—one that saw newer submarkets solidified and older ones reinvented. In the end, after much debate and discussion, editors selected winners in 17 categories, from Best New Headquarters to Executive of the Year. They’re profiled in this feature. Visit our news site, D CEO Real Estate, in the coming weeks to read stories on all 64 honorees.

BEST LAND DEAL: 1100 McKinney
Last summer, news broke that Kaizen Development Partners, Woods Capital, and Dundon Capital Partners had quietly acquired 6 acres on McKinney Avenue at Field Street—a prime tract and one of the largest in Dallas’ Central Business District. The developers are planning a $1 billion+ mixed-use development with five towers (office, residential, hotel, and retail) in the first phase. “This site will change the skyline of downtown Dallas forever,” says Sarah Hinkley Kennington of Thirty-Four Commercial, who brokered the complicated deal.
Finalists: 46 Ranch Logistics Park, 5523 Boulder Drive, Diamond J Ranch, Miyakao Hotel
