Louisville Business First selects the top developments and transactions that have left a major impression on Louisville. Dozens of projects are nominated by architects, contractors and brokers for the Commercial Real Estate Champions program. Now in its sixth year, a panel of real estate experts work with Louisville Business First to review projects and weigh them based on their innovation, importance, impact and other factors. After consultation and consideration, a team of Business First editors selected In-Rel’s acquisition of Meidinger Tower as a finalist. The program will conclude with an April 12 awards event.

ANNOUNCING: Our 2018 Commercial Real Estate Champions
Feb 1, 2018, 2:18pm EST
At last count, nearly 185 development projects — including hotels, office buildings, apartment complexes and industrial warehouses — are underway in Louisville and Southern Indiana. It’s proof of the region’s booming commercial real estate market.
You can check out Louisville Business First’s Project Watch to follow the progress of these projects. Some of them will be future contenders for our Commercial Real Estate Champions awards. Now in its sixth year, the program honors developments and deals that exemplify excellence in the industry.
Dozens of local projects were nominated by architects, contractors and brokers for our annual Commercial Real Estate Champions program. Projects completed in 2017 were eligible. We worked with a panel of Certified Commercial Investor Members, who reviewed the applications and weighed them based on their innovation, importance, impact and other factors. After much consultation and consideration, a team of Business First editors made the decisions on which projects to honor.
This year, Business First is awarding superlatives in 10 categories — in addition to our top Deal of the Year award — to developments and transactions that have left major impressions on our city. Some have completely transformed our landscape, while others have generated jobs or breathed new life into old buildings.
This year, we also give a nod to seven additional projects that are worthy of recognition.
We’ll reveal our superlative winners and other honorees at the 2018 Commercial Real Estate Champions awards. (Registration information is available here.) We’ll also tell you more about these projects in a special section in the April 13 weekly and digital editions of Louisville Business First.
But for now, you can get a peek at this year’s honorees by clicking on the slideshow above. Congratulations to them all!
