Withee Malcolm was honored with a Grand Award for Best Affordable Housing Community-60 to 100 du/acre for Metro Village in Baldwin Park, CA.
The judges were complimentary of Metro Village, a new mixed-use, transit-oriented development with 70 affordable units, recognizing its well-executed design, unique site planning, and architecture. They said, "The building types are carefully designed utilizing irregular shapes as a response to the site constraints. The result being the creation of third places and open spaces to encourage social connections and interactions. The elevations were skillfully crafted with executed massing and layering of materials and details. The use of bold colors and accents brought energy and freshness to this amazing project. A truly outstanding effort, well deserving of this award." Metro Village was developed and built by ROEM Development Corporation.
The 54th Annual Gold Nugget Awards Presentation was held on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center.
