Buildings are literally the landscape and skyline of our existence, and few regions have been remaking that landscape with such exuberance and fervor as ours. Seattle has 49 cranes across its skyline, tied for the most in the United States with Los Angeles, according to project management company Rider Levett Bucknall.

But buildings are more than four walls and a roof. How do they keep us comfortable and protected, and make effective use of the land and resources? How do they influence economic development? To recognize excellence in commercial real estate projects in the Puget Sound region, Seattle Business magazine has established a new awards program called the Skyline Awards. In the pages to come, you’ll be reading about office, hotel, industrial, multifamily, cultural and historic-preservation projects that have been groundbreaking, innovative, challenge-conquering and problem-solving.
