"WCREW helps women in all disciplines of the commercial real estate industry achieve success by providing opportunities to learn, lead, network and do business together," said Degner. WCREW is the Wisconsin chapter of the CREW Network, a national organization of commercial real estate professionals from every discipline.
Six projects are selected each year from real estate and development community submissions. Two distinct categories include Vision and Impact. The Vision Awards recognize projects where project participants do more with less with a smaller budget or a smaller space and the development's success causes it to stand out among the competition. The Impact Awards recognize projects with a larger presence which has a significant impact on the community. All category awards exemplify strong commercial real estate activity in the state of Wisconsin.
Winning projects were chosen by a panel of judges made up of experienced and respected local real estate professionals. The 2014 awards include:
The Impact Ingenuity - ABB at Innovation Campus.
The Vision Ingenuity - 88Nine Radio Milwaukee.
Impact Achievement - Northwestern Mutual Van Buren Office Building.
Vision Achievement - Groth Design Group Office Remodel.
Judges' Choice Impact - UWM Children's Learning Center.
