DALLAS-Hillwood Properties’ president Michael Berry and the Caroline Rose Hunt Family, which built, owns and operates Rosewood Hotel & Resort, are the latest inductees into the North Texas Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame. Both will be honored at the NTCRE dinner and 25th reunion, which will take place on May 2 at the Brook Hollow Golf Club.
The Caroline Rose Hunt Family operates Rosewood Corp., which invests in real estate, oil and gas, private equity capital and ranches through three subsidiaries: Rosewood Resources, Inc.; Rosewood Private Investments and Rosewood Property Co. Additionally, Caroline Rose Hunt is the founder and former honorary chair of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. Rosewood debuted its first hotel, The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas, in 1980 with a vision put in place by Mrs. Hunt to create luxurious, residential-style hotels that offer unparalleled attention to detail and exceptional personalized service. The Rosewood collection, which now encompasses 22 iconic hotels and resorts in seven countries, was sold in 2011.
As president of Hillwood Properties, Michael Berry leads all management, operations and transactions and serves as the company’s representative among public sector entities for AllianceTexas, a 17,000-acre master-planned development in north Fort Worth. Stemming from the strong commercial base of AllianceTexas are corporate campuses, office complexes, tech and data centers, destination retail and entertainment venues, residential housing, schools, churches and community shopping. In total, the development encompasses nearly 32 million square feet, over 300 corporate residents, 30,000+ employees and more than 7,700 single-family homes. AllianceTexas has generated more than $40 billion in economic impact to North Texas.
“We are extremely honored to add the Caroline Rose Hunt Family and Michael Berry to our distinguished Hall of Fame roster,” says Chris Teesdale, chair of the 2013 NTCAR Hall of Fame dinner. “Mrs. Hunt and her family and Mike Berry have brought worldwide acclaim to North Texas for their exceptional hospitality management and innovative property management concepts, respectively.”
