Welcome to uncharted territories. From Philadelphia's first residential high-rise in 20 years to a former insane asylum to a one-of-a-kind compensation program for leasing associates, the 2008 MFE Awards prove that, when it comes to the multifamily industry, no project, building, or program is beyond reach.
