Ralph Bivins’ Realty News Report Awards – The Best of Houston 2015
Realty News Report editor Ralph Bivins has selected the most significant projects, deals and ideas of the Houston real estate market for 2015. These aren’t necessarily the largest or the first. But the deals point to future trends, potential gold mines, noble visions and notable accomplishments by the smart professionals who are making them happen.
Realty News Report Award for:
Best Substitution of the Year – Former NBA star Magic Johnson of Canyon Johnson real estate, is out of the GreenStreet mixed-use project in downtown Houston. Replacing Johnson, Lionstone Investments became a partner with Midway Cos., in redeveloping the downtown project, which opened seven years ago as Houston Pavilions. With a new generation of owners, plus new public improvements elevating the walkability and landscaping on the adjacent Dallas Street, the GreenStreet project seems poised to take root and flourish in 2016.
