CREW Detroit Calls for Entries in 2007 Commercial Real Estate Impact Awards.

BIRMINGHAM, Mich., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Detroit chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW Detroit) now has 2007 entry packages for its sixth annual commercial real estate award program, the CREW Detroit Impact Awards, available online.

The awards recognize two recently completed southeast Michigan commercial properties that significantly improve their surrounding communities.

The 2007 competition is open to new construction and redevelopment projects completed between Jan. 1, 2006 and June 30, 2007. The projects must also have involved at least one firm with a CREW Detroit member, says Sheila Monohon of Giffels-Webster Engineers in Rochester Hills, award committee chair. A list of companies with a CREW Detroit member is available at crewdetroit.org/memlist.htm .

Impact Award "intent to enter" forms can be downloaded now at crewdetroit.org/awards.html. Printed forms will be available after April 16 from Norma Beuter at 248.646.0629 or beuter@comcast.net. Completed forms should be submitted along with a $100 entry fee by June 1. Entrants will then receive an entry package outlining the submission requirements. Those completed entry packages are due on or before June 29.

Projects earn points for being environmentally friendly, improving the surrounding community and creatively using current materials, space and technology, Monohon notes. Visteon Village in Van Buren Township and the Mason Run brownfield redevelopment in Monroe won in 2006 in the new development and redevelopment categories, respectively.

A panel of eight judges from the commercial real estate industry will select one winner in each category in August. The awards will be presented at a Sept. 20 luncheon at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. Tickets are $65; for more information, contact Beth Lilley at 313.256.2342 or elizabeth.lilley@chase.com, or see the web site.

It is one of the largest local chapters of CREW Network, a professional organization of 7,000 commercial real estate women and men in the U.S. and Canada.
