Trumark Homes won four 2014 SoCal Awards, including Best Architectural Design and Best Interior Merchandising for SL70, a new development of 70 three-story single-family homes bordering the Silver Lake and Echo Park neighborhoods, during a recent gala awards ceremony at The Grove in Anaheim, Calif.
"We're honored to receive this prestigious recognition for SL70, a project that represents everything Trumark stands for as a new-generation builder," said Mark Higgins, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Trumark Homes.
Presented by the Greater Sales & Marketing Council and Building Industry Association of Southern California, the SoCal Awards encompass all facets of professional achievement, sales, marketing, merchandising and design. This year's competition drew more than 425 entries, and more than 600 homebuilding professionals attended the gala award ceremonies.
Trumark teamed up with long-term equity partner The Resmark Companies in developing the 2.34-acre property located on Glendale Boulevard just south of the 2 Freeway. SL70 brings design-centric housing to an up-and-coming neighborhood that is starved for contemporary living spaces. Designed by JZMK Partners to appeal to professionals who already make up a large portion of homeowners and residents in the Silver Lake/Los Feliz/Echo Park neighborhoods, SL70 reflects the neighborhood's culture while enhancing the existing, vibrant community.
"The unique urban design of these homes fits seamlessly with our buyers' busy lifestyles with low-maintenance living that takes full advantage of entertaining space overlooking the downtown skyline and surrounding hillside views," Higgins said.
These are just a few of the reasons judges honored the newly opened residential community with an award for Best Architectural Design of a Detached Home.
Unique undulation in building facades and bright pops of color make SL70's exteriors stand out, and Trumark's design team, Costa Mesa-based Creative Design Consultants (CDC Designs), furnished model interiors with out-of-the-box furnishings including vintage and original pieces from local artists that earned SL70 the SoCal Award for Best Interior Merchandising of a Detached Home.
SL70 also won awards for Best Community Website and Best Logo, which can be viewed here: www.sl70.com.
