Stern Ann Holmes William McDonough Joe Mashburn From a young developer of suburban industrial space to a pioneering entrepreneur who transformed the Houston skyline to the respected chairman of the world’s most innovative development firm, Gerald D. Hines has been recognized for his adherence to the highest standards of quality and for his support of cutting-edge design and urban planning. Hines has partnered with generations of top-tier architects like no commercial real estate developer before him—a bold tack validated by his company’s success over the past five decades. Hines has been granted every top honor in his industry, but it is the secure and exciting future of the company he founded in 1957 that Hines considers his greatest legacy. “He gets just as excited as I do when a new form, a new idea is coming into place to make a more beautiful building. That is why he has pursued excellence in design so continuously—because it is part of him. It is not something that he does as a strategy, but just out of love for good buildings.”— Cesar Pelli “What Gerry brought to Houston was a big-picture view of how innovative design and broad concepts could enhance our city. Gerald Hines has contributed more to the beauty and viability of our beloved Houston than any individual building or property.”—George H. W. Bush
