HBJ reveals real estate project finalists for 2020 Landmark Awards

Every year, numerous real estate projects are completed across the Houston area, impacting all industries in the metro. But there are always some that stand out above the others.

The Houston Business Journal’s Landmark Awards recognize real estate projects that make a significant impact on Houston and help sculpt the look, feel and image of the city. Our panel of judges narrowed down the finalists to 51 projects in 19 categories for this year’s awards. Some finalists appear in more than one category.

HBJ will recognize all the finalists and reveal the winners in a special section of the April 24 weekly edition and at the Landmark Awards event on April 23. Click here for more information about the event.

A Lifetime Achievement Award winner also will be honored at the event. HBJ will announce the honoree prior to the event.

Projects are recognized for excellence in land planning, design, construction, economics, marketing and management. Nominations were open to all real estate projects completed in the greater Houston area from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2019.
