Break ground on a project worth at least $100 million in calendar year 2018? If so, maybe it belongs on ENR New York's Top Starts rankings.

Once again, we'll be using Dodge data and other information to determine the Top Starts in New York and New Jersey. The list will be published in the March 18-25, 2019, edition of ENR New York. At the end of this blog post is a preliminary list, which is subject to change.

In the same magazine issue, we'll also feature the Owner of the Year, based in part on the numerical value of projects that the company began in 2018.

If you are an owner, general contractor or design firm and would like a project you are involved in to be considered for the Top Starts rankings, please email me the following information:

  1. Name of Project  [exactly as it should appear in print]
  2. Location of Project  [City, State]
