Bloomington Grove & Lillian Court Garner Gold Nugget Grand Award
Withee Malcolm took home the Grand Award for Best Affordable Housing Community-under 30 du/acre for Bloomington Grove and Lillian Court in San Bernardino County, CA. The project also earned a Merit Award in the Best Affordable Senior Housing Community category.
Developed and built by The Related Companies, Bloomington Grove and Lillian Court are the residential components of a California Mission style, mixed-use community that changed a disadvantaged area by successfully integrating public social uses and affordable housing. The development offers 70 senior units, 36 family units and 11 supportive housing units for special needs tenants, a 6,500-square-foot public library, a senior community space, a community center and classroom facility. Social services include after school programs and educational classes.
In honoring the project, the judges were impressed with this intergenerational, affordable community that incorporates a public library and that the community was designed with the residents’ quality of life in mind.
The 54th Annual Gold Nugget Awards Presentation was held on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center.
