MHN Editor-in-Chief Diana Mosher said this about the awards, “This year’s Excellence Awards celebration drew an interesting crowd of multi-housing executives. We were excited to see how many traveled from out of town to accept their awards and some brought multiple team members to participate in the celebration. MHN congratulates all the 2011 winners and finalists. And we thank Douglaston Development for partnering with us. Ohm was a fantastic venue that also provided an educational component for attendees interested in the development of the West Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.”
