Multifamily Executive magazine is acknowledging Irvine-based KTGY Group Inc. for their innovation in creating community spaces while keeping sustainability in mind. Two of the company’s Orange County projects, The Crossing in Anaheim and UCI’s phase III east campus apartments, are nominated as finalists in the magazine's rankings.
The Crossing at Anaheim is up for Project of the Year in the Low Rise category. Previously the land was used for industrial use. KTGY says it transformed the area into 312 luxury apartments.
“In a region dominated by the automobile and consumption of our natural resources, this environmentally-friendly development is a positive alternative that responds to a new demographic that is energy conscious, but still demands resort-style living and rich amenities, near mass transit, employment, shopping, and entertainment,” said David Senden, the lead designer on the project and a principal with KTGY.
KTGY and UCI’s east campus phase III apartments are also up for the Project of the Year award in the Student category. The undergraduate site will incorporate town home living, including a separate clubhouse called The Lodge. Both housing structures and The Lodge earned a LEED Gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
“Today’s students expect environmental responsibility from their campus as well as great amenities,” said Principal and Director of Architecture at KTGY, Daniel McAllister.
The winners for the Multifamily Executive Project of the Year Awards will be announced on Oct. 4, 2011.
