The property also provides free Wi-Fi Internet and bike storage. Each residential unit is apartment-styled, fully furnished with private bathrooms and bedrooms, and features an in-unit washer/dryer, a kitchen with quartz counters and full appliances, large walk-in closets, high speed Internet, cable, and a flat-screen TV.

Now in its 34rd year, BALA recognizes outstanding achievement by builders and design professionals in all sectors of the residential housing industry including single-family production, custom, multifamily, affordable, remodeling, community and interiors. BALA is built on the principle that all great homes start with great design, no matter cost or size.

Buying a home is often the most significant purchase people will make in their lifetime, and BALA winners spotlight what building industry professionals need to know to set their project apart and hit the right mark with today’s highly educated and discerning home buyers.

Award winners will be formally announced during the annual NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida.
