"This interactive website presents the best work now being done in the multifamily industry," said Charles R. Brindell, Jr., Chair of NAHB's Multifamily Leadership Board, and CEO of Mill Creek Residential Trust LLC. "The finalists are examples of communities that deliver everything residents expect from an apartment or condo: great design, inside and out; cutting-edge features and amenities; great marketing, and solid, professional management."
The competition attracted nearly 300 entries, and includes categories for multifamily rental and for-sale communities, marketing campaigns for those communities, and honors for individual and corporate achievement in 2010. The 93 finalists in 27 categories represent the best of the industry and are considered a showcase of future trends and innovation.
Winners in the Marketing and Individual categories will be announced on the website through a virtual awards show webcast at 2:00 p.m. ET on October 21, and the winners in the Builder and Firm categories will be similarly announced on December 7. Login instructions will be provided at www.nahb.org/pillarsawards.
