NAHB Adds Categories, Calls for Entries for the 2012 Best of 50+ Housing Awards

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 50+ Housing Council has added more than a dozen new categories to its Best of 50+ Housing Awards, which is now accepting nominations.

The awards honor excellence in building, design, and marketing of senior housing, and 2012’s awards will include new categories such as “Best Integration of Technology,” “Best ‘Green’ Community,” and “Best Universal Designed Home,” among others.

“The Best of 50+ Housing Awards are this industry’s most influential national awards,” said 50+ Housing Council Chair, Ken Simons, a developer from Bedminster, N.J., in a statement. “The awards not only recognize the best of the country’s top builders and developers in the 50+ housing sector, but also show the public the newest and most innovative housing trends for mature buyers and renters.”


Any builders, developers, marketers, and designers of 50+ housing are invited to participate in the competition. Previous winners include an affordable rental community in Walkersville, Md., an active adult community in Torrance, Calif., and a continuum of care community in Osaka, Japan.

The 2012 winners will be announced at the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla., on Feb. 9, 2012.
