NORTH BAY - The Business Journal has selected 11 North Bay real estate projects for our 2011 Top Projects Awards to be honored at a North Bay Business Journal event in December.
“We know how difficult this economy is," said Business Journal Editor and Associate Publisher Brad Bollinger. “But in the midst of it all, we thought it absolutely critical that we tell our readership and the public about those organizations that are continuing to invest in our communities with projects such as yours.”
Projects needed to be completed or close to being so in 2011. In determining the winners, the Business Journal editorial staff looked for exceptional project features, contributions they made to the business community and the achievement involved in completing them. Winning projects in a number of categories were selected from nominations submitted by architects, engineers, commercial real estate brokers and other professionals.
Profiles of the winning projects will appear in a special report Dec. 5, and winners will be honored at our annual Top Projects Award Reception on Dec. 14 at the Sheraton Sonoma County in Petaluma, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available for $35 per person or $400 for a table of 10, including company name on the table. To attend, contact Linda Perkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-521-5264, or register online.
