The annual celebration acknowledges excellence throughout the South Florida commercial real estate (CRE) industry.
Malcom Butters, president, and co-founder of Butters Construction & Development, will receive the 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award. A 32-year commercial real estate development veteran, Butters is regarded as one of the most active and innovative developers in the state and a pioneer in elevating the architectural standards for commercial buildings.
His real estate firm is actively engaged in the construction, development, investment, property management and leasing of industrial, office, and retail properties, and is currently ranked number one on the South Florida Business Journal’s annual list of the region’s commercial real estate developers.
Over the course of his career, Butters has built more than 22 million sq. ft., including First Park Miami, a 2.5 million-sq.-ft. industrial development underway in Miami, and Miami Midway Park, a 50-acre warehouse and apartment unit project. Other development highlights include the 600,000-sq.-ft. office and retail Boca Village Corporate Center, Hillsboro Technology Park and Marriott Residence Inn Coconut Creek, among many others.
Butters has won Developer of the Year six times from NAIOP South Florida and was included in Florida Trend’s Florida 500 Most Influential Business Leaders of 2022.
