Dahlin Group Architecture Planning is celebrating its recent recognition for senior housing design with the receipt of a SAGE (Senior Achievement and General Excellence) Award from the 50+ Housing Council of the Building Industry Association of Southern California.
Dahlin Group received a top honor for the "on the boards" category for Magnolia Courts, an active adult community in La Verne, California that is planned for a September opening. Magnolia Courts includes 101 Craftsman style condominiums in a setting of courtyards, open space and clubhouse amenities. Designed for Hsientein La Verne Investment, LLC, the project was designed with close consultation with the City of LaVerne, CalTrans and other governmental entities for the 3.28-acre infill site.
"Magnolia Court reflects the growing importance of the active adult market, infill development and greener, more sustainable design and planning," said John Thatch, Dahlin Group Principal of Design. "We are delighted to see it honored in such a competitive arena as the SAGE program, which fielded a record number of entries for its 2009 program."
