Regarding the Trends Awards Bob Peck, Principal at Gensler and Jury Foreman for the Trends Conference Awards remarked:
“This year’s 54 applications for the Trends Awards reflect the best of the Washington real estate community’s creativity and dedication to creating livable, sustainable places. The jury did not find it easy to narrow the field, but we are sure that the finalists are the best in their categories, providing models for vibrant housing, commercial and mixed-use development in our region’s communities.”
