Summit Awards recognition
Mark Krueger of ArchCrest Commercial Partners in Reno won overall honors as Broker of the Year, and a project east of Sparks was honored as Development of the Year in the 2014 Summit Awards.
The awards program is hosted by northern Nevada chapters of three commercial real estate groups — CCIM, Commercial Real Estate Women and NAIOP, an organization of industrial and office developers.
Unique Infrastructure Group of Reno was recognized for Development of the Year for its work on Reno Technology Park east of Sparks. The development is the home of an Apple data center, although Unique Infrastructure was recognized only for its development of the park, not the Apple facility.

Amid slow vaccine rollout, will retail real estate in Reno-Sparks see return to ‘normal’ by the summer?
Sales of retail properties across Northern Nevada lagged after the initial wave of state-mandated closures last spring since it was impossible to underwrite the rental income generated from cash-strapped tenants. Investors, however, have cautiously been dipping their toes back into the pond.
