Owing to the pandemic, NAIOP’s Night of the Stars was an entirely virtual affair last Friday. It was the first time the annual gala was conducted via computer, and not held in a ballroom. However, what you missed in person can be viewed online in the photo gallery at naiopwa.org, including both winners and nominees.
• High-Rise Residential Development: Nexus. Burrard Development of Vancouver, B.C. was the condominium developer, with Weber Thompson as its architect. Skanska USA built the 41-story, 389-unit tower in the Denny Triangle.
• Mixed-Use Development: Kirkland Urban. Phase I of the downtown project was developed by Talon Private Capital and Ryan Cos., with the latter also serving as general contractor. PGIM was a financial partner. CollinsWoerman designed the offices (now owned by Google), and Weber Thompson designed the apartment building. Phase II, a third office building for Google, is now under construction.
