University House Central Florida Awarded Grand Award in 2013 Gold Nugget Awards
University House Central Florida, a student housing development built by Winter Park Construction, is the recipient of a Grand Award from the 2013 Gold Nugget Awards. The Gold Nugget Awards, presented by PCBC and sponsored by Builder Magazine, recognizes builders, developers, architects and land planners who improve our communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the award competition and the ceremony took place in San Diego, California on June 05, 2013.
University House Central Florida was the recipient of a Grand Award, the highest achievement, for the Best Campus Housing Project – Faculty or Student Residences. Developed by Inland American Communities and designed by Humphreys & Partners Architects, L.P., this premier student housing development just one mile south of the University of Central Florida (UCF) wowed the judges with the “myriad of first class amenities.” The 5-story, 416-unit/995-bed development features a fitness center, multimedia lounge, resort-style pool with cabanas, sport courts, a putting green, tanning beds and more. The contemporary and modern exterior complement the evolving urban feel of the UCF campus and surrounding areas.
This is the first award for University House Central Florida. To read more about this project, please visit our website at www.wpc.com/projects/detail/?id=27.
