The Builders, Owners and Developers and Community Awards represent the very best in the rental housing industry. This Award recognizes excellence in a range of rental property styles, sizes and ages. The theme of service runs through the awards. Service is a very important component of these awards, service to the resident and service to the community as well as financial performance.
The Community Awards fall into five areas – new, 5-20 years, 20 plus years, green and specialty. Each submission must identify the appropriate style, age and size. There are eight potential award categories. If the judges determine that no submission within a category exemplifies the best in the multifamily housing industry, no award will be given for that category. The categories allow all rental properties to be eligible for submission.
Each PARAGON Community Award winner is automatically considered for the prestigious Apartment Community of the Year Award by virtue of winning an award in one of the eight unique categories. Among the winning entries, judges will select one community to receive the Apartment Community of the Year Award, representing the best of the best.
The 2014 Apartment Community of the Year will also be announced during the NAA Awards Celebration breakfast at the 2014 NAA Education Conference & Exposition. The community will also be featured on the cover of the September issue of units magazine, NAA’s monthly publication that reports on the apartment industry.
