Awards Recognize Achievement in Workforce Housing
Recognizing ingenuity in the development, construction and marketing of affordable workforce housing, NAHB honored six communities with the first Innovation in Workforce Housing Awards on Jan. 14 during the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla.
“It is my pleasure to bring attention to projects that are designed to meet the needs of America’s working families,” said Bobby Rayburn, 2004 president of NAHB. “These awards emphasize creativity in community design, financing and in partnering with other community groups. I can’t think of a better way to single out builders and developers who are ahead of the curve on addressing this critical need.”
Six communities were recognized with the national Innovation in Workforce Housing Award:
- Hilton Heights
The Franciscus Company, Inc.
Newport News, Va.
- Mesquite Manor Subdivision
- North Willow Green
Leewood Real Estate Group/NJ LLC
- Rheingold Gardens Partnership Homes
The Bluestone Organization
- The Stellina
- Mitchell Chase Project
Cobb Housing, Inc.
The award recognizes outstanding communities across the nation that provide decent and affordable homes for nurses, police officers, schoolteachers and other essential service personnel, near areas in which they work.
