Jim Chapman Communities Wins Gold and Silver at NAHB 2008 Best of 50+ Housing Awards Competition

Atlanta, GA, September 14, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Jim Chapman Communities' newest active adult development, Brookhaven of East Cobb, received both the Gold and Silver Awards at the National Association of Home Builders Best of 50+ Housing Awards Gala in New Orleans on May 20, 2008. The Best of 50+ Housing Awards is the premier design and marketing competition for the senior housing industry.

The awards gala was held in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders’ Building for Boomers & Beyond: 50+ Housing Symposium, for which Chapman was a speaker. The Symposium is the leading education and networking conference for industry professionals involved in 50+ housing.

Brookhaven of East Cobb, a gated 96-unit ranch condo development, is the 2008 Gold Award Winner in the Active Adult Clubhouses: Small category as well as the Silver Award Winner for its Westminster II floor plan in the category of Active Adult Attached Home Design For Sale: 1,701 – 2,400 square feet. The community and its entries were recognized by an elite panel of 13 judges that included builders, developers, architects, marketing experts and other respected industry professionals. The panel chose finalists from nearly 300 entries in more than 40 categories.

“The recognition and receipt of these national housing awards is both a professional and a personal honor,” said Chapman. “You see, my father, a local award winning clubhouse architect, and I, designed both of these plans together in his home studio and he is really excited about winning these awards. For our joint work together to be honored will be quite memorable for both of us. Professionally, a great deal of time, research and planning has been dedicated to the look and feel of all five of our active adult communities. Knowing our team is designing and building the best homes, amenities and communities for our customers is what this is all about”.
