"This year's finalists showed us how important it is to incorporate features and amenities that fit the lifestyle of the buyers and residents of their properties "says NAHB 50+ Housing Council Chairman W. Don Whyte. "The entrants supplied competitive and attractive projects for the 50+ market and we are excited to announce those award-winning projects at IBS."
Finalists were selected from entries in 36 categories representing active adult housing service-enriched housing lifestyle and marketing activity. The judges also singled out several entries for innovation awards.
From this group of finalists Gold Award winners will be named at the Best of 50+ Housing Awards presentation on Jan. 23 2013 during the NAHB International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas.
NAHB's 50+ Housing Council launched the Best of 50+ Housing Awards to encourage quality and innovation in the 50+ housing market. The Council provides information education and networking opportunities for its members and provides advocacy support to NAHB on key 50+ housing issues.
