FORT MYERS, Fla. (April 25, 2023) – Earning a CoStar Impact Award is a distinct honor in commercial real estate. Winning two such awards in the same year is unprecedented. The brokerage team at Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Property Southwest Florida (CPSWFL) has accomplished this rare feat by winning a pair of 2023 CoStar Impact Awards. Award recipients were selected from a panel of more than 750 industry professionals drawn from each respective commercial real estate market.
The CoStar Impact Awards recognize exemplary commercial real estate transactions and projects completed in 2022 that have significantly influenced the region. Winners are chosen for their growth, diversification, and ability to overcome unique challenges in their particular markets. As the orchestrator behind many of the area’s most significant commercial real estate transactions over the last 15 years, CPSWFL is well known regionally for its role in shaping the Southwest Florida commercial property landscape.
Gary Tasman, CEO and Principal Broker, and Shawn Stoneburner, Senior Director, were honored by CoStar Group for Sale/Acquisition of the Year for the Gulf Landing Logistics Center on Ben Hill Griffin Parkway in Fort Myers. Entitled for up to 2.2 million square feet of bulk warehouse and distribution space, the logistics center is one of the largest such developments in Southwest Florida to date.
Tasman and Stoneburner were also awarded a CoStar Impact Award for Lease of the Year for the 44,800-square foot Tesla regional repair facility on Lee Road in Fort Myers. Because Florida is one of the top states in the country for Tesla ownership, award judge Dana Brunett, Director of Business Development for Lee County Economic Development, noted that the facility “addresses a major need” in the region. With this transaction, Fort Myers now joins Tampa and Sarasota with the only Tesla service centers on Florida’s gulf coast.
“I’m incredibly proud of our entire team for this accomplishment. Our brokerage team was the only one in the entire country to earn multiple Impact Awards, and everyone here played a part,” explained Tasman. “It’s really a unique distinction to be honored twice by our contemporaries, especially after such an intense year in commercial real estate here in Southwest Florida.”
“We’re grateful for the chance to recognize the accomplishments of noteworthy real estate projects and transactions across the industry,” said Andy Florance, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CoStar Group. “As the industry continues to evolve, real estate professionals have adapted and contributed immensely to the neighborhoods they serve through innovative projects and community-driven initiatives.”
CoStar Impact Awards are presented across 128 major international markets in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Each market may award a single winner in up to five categories: Lease of the Year, Sale/Acquisition of the Year, Commercial Development of the Year, Multifamily Development of the Year and Redevelopment of the Year.
