Local real estate developer David Burk has been named the 2012 recipient of the Kansas CCIM Chapter / Wichita State University Center for Real Estate Lifetime Achievement Award.
The honor is awarded annually to an individual who has made as significant contribution to the commercial real estate and/or development industry in Wichita over a long period of time.
Burk is best known as a founding developer of the Old Town Marketplace District in Wichita. He has also been a partner in the WaterWalk development and in Block 1, a public/private partnership that will result in the redevelopment of an entire city block on Douglas in downtown Wichita.
"We owe it to our community and our children to preserve and create an area which both celebrates our rich history and provides us with a uniquely Wichita destination to showcase our city," Burk said.
Burk is the eighth recipient of the award. Previous recipients include Colby Sandlian (2005), Jack Hunt (2006), George Ablah (2007), Jack DeBoer (2008), Nestor & Michael Weigand (2009), Stephen L. Clark (2010) and Herbert L. Krumsick (2011).
