12th & Midtown, the four-block megaproject being developed by Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises took home the top award in Atlanta Business Chronicle's Best in Atlanta Real Estate 2009 awards. Daniel and Selig, along with financiers MetLife, Canyon-Johnson and others, are transforming Midtown's former "Hippie District" into a true live-work-play-eat-and-shop megaproject.

The billion-dollar-plus development is transforming the west and east sides of Peachtree Street between 11th and 13th streets, and for it success to date, it won the "Best Overall" category at the awards show. Best in Atlanta Real Estate was held Thursday evening at the Fox Theatre about 10 blocks south of 12th & Midtown. (Edelman represents Daniel on the 12th & Midtown project, and we had no influential over the selection process.)

Other winners included Newmark Knight Frank, which won Office Deal of the Year for its role in First Data Corp.'s 184,000-square-foot lease at Glenridge Highlands II and Jacoby Development Inc., which won Land Deal of the Year for its purchase of the shuttered Ford plant in Hapeville, Ga.
