Even in a tough market, there is always a sweet spot – that point where the factors converge to create enviable success against daunting odds. In Central Florida, Starwood Land Ventures has found a sweet spot.

At Ricco Construction, it is absolutely critical for employees to always do the job without any shortcuts. Based in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, the contractor strives to do all of its projects right, which range from small to mid-sized projects.

When Stephen Ross founded Related Companies in 1972, he focused on developing affordable multifamily housing for long-term investment. Over the next 40 years, Related developed over $22 billion in real estate and today owns real estate assets valued at more than $15 billion, These are comprised of best-in-class mixed-use, residential, retail, office, trade show and affordable properties in premier high-barrier-to-entry markets.   As a fully integrated, highly diversified leader in the development industry, it is capable of taking any project from inception to finish, expertly handling all facets.

McCormack Baron Salazar (MBS) Inc. is a developer of mixed-income communities across the country, Senior Vice President Meg Manley says. “In this place, nobody’s apologizing for affordable housing,” she declares. “We’re trying to revolutionize it.”

Bill Nicholson, owner and CEO of The Congress Companies, learned many lessons from his uncle and his father who started the company in the early 1950s. Some of those lessons were how to hold a client and how to service a client. Nicholson learned early on that the construction experience starts for the client way before the shovel hits the ground. That premise, backed by a dedication to providing the best quality to every project, has made The Congress Companies a long-lived company, with a third generation of family members taking their place to lead the business into the future.

At the 2012 Aurora Awards – sponsored by the Southeast Building Conference – WCI Communities took home three awards: best detached single family home, best attached for-sale home and best recreational facility.

It is no secret that there is a need for affordable senior communities across the United States. When The Crown Group decided to diversify its scope in 2008 as the traditional commercial development market dried up due to the recession, it wasn’t just looking to expand its portfolio. It was looking to bring much needed services to northeast Illinois.
