Development - Ownership

Alternative Niche/Developments of the Future (2030)

During the summer of 2015, NAIOP conducted a design competition in which it sought concepts for the Niche Development of the Future. NAIOP invited architects to submit a vision/concept plan in a niche category like “senior living” and “medical office.” An independent panel of judges evaluated the submissions against an objective set of criteria and selected three winners. Each winning firm presented its concept on October 14, 2015, at NAIOP’s Commercial Real Estate Conference 2015 in Toronto, at a session moderated by Dale Dekker, AIA, AICP, founding principal and architect with Dekker/Perich/Sabatini in Albuquerque, New Mexico.    

Read about the concepts from the three winners.  The winning firms are KGD Architecture, Arlington, Virginia; Meyer, Ardmore, Pennsylvania; and Ware Malcomb, Irvine, California.
