WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 22, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Pollack Shores Real Estate Group, based in Atlanta, was named Multifamily Development Firm of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) as part of the association’s Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards.
“Pollack Shores’ commitment to serving the communities where their residents and team members live is unparalleled,” said W. Dean Henry, CEO of Legacy Partners Residential in Foster City, Calif., and chairman of NAHB’s Multifamily Leadership Board. “Pollack Shores is an exceptional leader in the multifamily housing market and well deserving of this award.”
The award, sponsored by Zip System/Advantech, honors excellence in multifamily housing development, financial performance, innovative development strategies and practices and successful achievement of the company’s vision and goals.
Founded in 2006, Pollack Shores currently manages a balanced portfolio of over 13,600 units representing in excess of $1.3 billion in total assets. In late 2014, Pollack Shores became part of a joint venture team hired by the Atlanta Braves to lead the development of a $400 million mixed-use complex near the team’s future home, SunTrust Park.
Pollack Shores strives to provide added value to their properties in the Southeast. One project of note developed in Orlando, Fla., dubbed STEEELHOUSE, required sensitive negotiations with several government entities and a local design committee. The City of Orlando wanted a landmark destination, so the company produced a transit-oriented design that incorporates a beautiful gallery and a walking and biking path, creating a community that is both high density and high quality.
A panel of multifamily development and design experts also selected winners in 29 other categories from excellence in building and marketing to individual and corporate achievement. Winners from all categories were recognized in a virtual awards ceremony last week.
