The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce holds the annual Building Brooklyn Awards. Currently accepting nominations for the 11th Annual Buidling Brooklyn Awards, the event is a signature real estate industry event that recognizes recently completed new, and renovation construction projects, that have a positive impact on the borough’s economy and quality of life.
The event honors individuals who have made significant contributions toward enhancing the business conditions and economic climate of Brooklyn. This year’s awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, July 14, 2011, at the Steiner Studios in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
More information and images from last year’s winners after the break.
Nominations will be judged by a panel of architects, city planners, economic development experts and business leaders, on various criteria including design excellence and innovation, economic impact, sustainability, urban context and design, contribution to neighborhood, and the all important but less definable quality of “Brooklyn-ness.”
Ten construction projects from across the borough were feted at the 2010 reception at Steiner Studios that attracted 400 attendees including real estate, design and construction professionals and government officials, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The event also honored David Kramer, principal of The Hudson Companies, Inc. and Joe Chan, president of Downtown Brooklyn Partnership.
