Professional Builder magazine unveiled its annual 2020 40 Under 40 list of rising stars in the home building industry and Justin Julian, Senior Associate - Senior Architect, of Dahlin Group Architecture Planning (DAHLIN) is among the honorees profiled in the March 2020 issue.

The program celebrates successful and well-rounded individuals under the age of 40. Nominees are judged based on their leadership skills, innovation, personal integrity and passion for excellence within the home building arena. This year's class of 14 women and 26 men were selected from more than 100 nominations submitted from all regions of the United States.

"This year's 40 Under 40 Award winners are an outstanding group of smart, determined, and innovative young housing industry leaders," says Editorial Director Denise Dersin. "Whether they went to work for an established company, joined a family firm, or started their own business right out of high school, they have achieved remarkable success in their chosen careers while also dedicating time and energy to community and charitable endeavors."

In just three years, Julian has successfully pioneered DAHLIN's Bellevue office into new territories and made significant positive impacts throughout the Pacific Northwest region. His dedication to his craft and desire to push the possibilities for clients have led him to create new product prototypes that have supported their geographical expansion and reach into urban areas beyond the Greater Seattle Area. Active in the community, Julian serves on the Membership Committee for NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, as incoming Chair for 2020 and donates time to Imagine Housing, an organization dedicated to developing affordable housing and welcoming communities.
