Touchstone: NAIOP Developer Of The Year


Congrats to Seattle-based Touchstone, which NAIOP has selected as the 2016 Developer of the Year, the association's highest honor. The company is largely focused on development of urban infill projects, including office, tech, biotech R&D buildings and business hotels. "We try to build a more delightful city in every way, because we will inherit that city in the next round and the next one after that," says Touchstone president A-P Hurd, snapped here at a Bisnow event.

All Touchstone buildings are LEED Silver certified or better, and most are LEED Gold. The company worked with the USGBC to develop the pilot Shell and Core designation and is advancing the techniques involved in reusing and incorporating older urban buildings in new construction.
