SOUTH FLORIDA BUSINESS JOURNAL: POWER LEADERS IN REAL ESTATE
South Florida’s Power Leaders in Real Estate truly have transformed the region’s landscape and skyline. They are the developers who turned beachfronts and downtowns into iconic luxury or business destinations; the homebuilders who created neighborhoods out of vast swaths of open lands; the engineers, architects, and planners who maximize use of space; and the commercial builders and real estate brokers whose deals helped bring tenants and buyers to South Florida.
This year’s list features 17 executives who did not make last year’s class, but whose efforts to transform the region helped them rise to the top.
There are certainly more executives that likely could have qualified for this list, as South Florida is known for its thriving real estate industry. But we keep the list to 100 and attempt to “share the wealth” and feature as many new Power Leaders as we can.
Join us in congratulating 2016’s Power Leaders in Real Estate…
