CYPRESS, TX – December 6, 2011 – Bridgeland is one of five developments across the nation named Community of the Year in The Nationals 2012 Silver Awards.
The community, which most recently won the Developer of the Year Grand Award in the Texas Association of Builders’ Texas Star Awards, also won four other Silver Awards: Print Campaign, Special Promotion, Signage and Graphic Continuity. It was the third time Bridgeland has won a Silver Award for Community of the Year.
The wins advance the community to the next round of competition, The Nationals Gold Awards, which will be announced February 8, 2012, in Orlando, Florida. The Nationals Awards program is sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders.
“The Silver Award for Community of the Year is particularly exciting as we’ve been honored with this award three times,” said Peter Houghton, Bridgeland’s vice president. “And a Gold Award would also be a repeat, since we won in 2009. It’s quite an accomplishment considering we just celebrated our five-year anniversary this fall!”
Bridgeland won several other awards this year, including Star Awards for Best Billboard-Developer, Best Online Advertisement-Developer, Best Print Ad-Developer, Best Showroom/Sales Center-Developer and Best Television Commercial-Developer.
This summer, two of Bridgeland’s television commercials – including the Silver Award winner – earned Bronze Awards in the international Telly Awards competition. Plus, the TV campaign won a Platinum Award in the International MarCom Awards presented by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals, and two of the commercials won individual Gold Awards in the same competition. Also, this year, Bridgeland won “Best Print Ad” in The Nationals 2011 Gold Awards and Event of the Year-Developer in the Houston’s Best awards.
An 11,400-acre master-planned community in Northwest Houston, Bridgeland will one day include more than 20,000 homes for 65,000 residents. Prices are from the $170s.
