The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) 50+ Housing Council announced the winners for its 2009 Best of 50+ Housing Awards, which honor excellence and innovation in the design, development and marketing of housing for older consumers late last month. The annual awards program, held during the Building for Boomers and Beyond: 50+ Housing Symposium, showcases the latest trends in housing for the mature market and many of the winning facilities have been proudly trumpeting the choices. The honorees represented a broad range of facilities showcasing diversity from both a geographical as well as cultural perspective and includes senior housing projects from around the world.
“This year’s winners incorporated a high level of quality and lifestyle specific amenities to their projects,” said Pat Kelley, a St. Louis builder and 2009 chair of NAHB’s 50+ Housing Council. “Buyers and residents in this economic climate need to feel that their home purchase is going to provide exactly what will make their lives easy and satisfying. This year’s entrants stepped up to the plate and supplied competitive and attractive projects for the 50+ market.”
