|WASHINGTON, May 1 - The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) opened its general call for entries for the 2017 Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards competition. Multifamily owners and developers, builders, property managers, architects, interior designers and multifamily industry professionals are invited to enter the competition.
The awards highlight excellence in apartment and condominium design and development, interior merchandising and superior property management and marketing. Since its inception in 1990, the Pillars Awards program has earned its reputation as the most prestigious awards program of its kind.
"Apartment and condo developers are building communities that represent the cutting edge of design and functionality, both of which are important to today's consumer," said Dan Markson, senior vice president of The NRP Group in San Antonio, Texas, and chairman of NAHB's Multifamily Council. "We look forward to seeing all of the different entries and their perspectives on today's multifamily market."
