It’s deadline day! That is, for commercial real estate’s most desperately desired award, The Real Estate Board of New York’s Most Ingenious Deal of the Year.
All the printer jams and panicked trips to Staples will be over shortly. At 5 p.m., brokerages all around the city will all breathe one giant sigh, after polishing those strictly-ordered applications (there are 12 rules in all, which includes using only 8 1/2 x 11-inch margins with a 12-point font size that’s double-spaced).
After this, it goes up to review by the very-secret jury (secret in order to avoid “conflict,” says the app). The top three awards will be announced on April 17 at the 101 Club.
