Dallas Builder Kent Conine Receives Dan Grady Award
2003 NAHB President Kent Conine received the Dan Grady Award during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas last month from NAHB Multifamily, a group of NAHB builders, developers, designers and lenders engaged in the production of rental apartment homes and condominiums.
Conine’s diversified Dallas-based company, the Conine Residential Group, builds both single-family and multifamily homes. The award, given in recognition of Conine’s tireless advocacy and service to the multifamily and affordable housing industry, is presented to an NAHB member who embodies the spirit and dedication to multifamily and affordable housing that the late Dan Grady so ably demonstrated.
Grady, who was active in housing from 1949 until his death in 1995, founded two companies to develop and manage subsidized housing. He served as a consultant to other developers, non-profit organizations and government agencies. He was inducted into NAHB’s Housing Hall of Fame in 1992.
Outgoing NAHB Multifamily Chair Will Cooper, Sr., described Grady as “creating high-quality rental housing opportunities for Americans of little means — a strong and powerful advocate for such housing through his work at NAHB.”
NAHB President Bobby Rayburn, also a builder of apartments and single-family homes, said, “Throughout his tenure as president, Kent Conine advanced the effort to help multifamily builders produce homes that working people can afford.”
