Cleary and Nahigian Receive 2019 James Felt Creative Counseling Award

Robert Cleary, Jr., CRE, senior vice president of Colliers International in Boston, and Rob Nahigian, CRE, principal of Auburndale Realty Company in Newton, MA, have earned the 2019 James Felt Award for Creative Counseling from The Counselors of Real Estate®.  The award celebrates outstanding achievement and ingenuity in real estate counseling by a member of the CRE organization and was presented April 29 in Chicago.

The pair was recognized for its site selection, development, lease analysis, and adaptive reuse work in converting a World War II-era U.S. Army ammunition building in Boston’s Seaport District into the new design, fabrication, and manufacturing facility for JC Cannistraro, LLC.  The company consolidated operations from Wilmington, Stoughton, and Watertown, MA, into the 320,000 square-foot Art Deco building, relocating existing employees and anticipating growth to total up to 400 jobs in the popular burgeoning development district.
