RETAILOBSERVER.COM SEPTEMBER 2019 36 Multi-Family Community of the Year THE RESIDENCES AT PACIFIC CITY Huntington Beach, CA Builder: Bernards Developer: UDR, Inc. Architect/Designer: MVE + Partners, Inc. Land Planner: MVE + Partners, Inc. Interior Designer: Mister Important Design Photographer: Slav Zakota Images, LLC; and Hunter Kerhart Although the judges enjoyed a number of thoughtful and inspiring multi-family project submissions, this 516-unit project on 17.2 acres adjacent to the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach, California quickly rose to the top and outshone the other projects as a unanimous winner! Simply put, this "beach-inspired" project is outstanding. The project is richly layered into six residential apartment neighborhoods that wrap around a stunning community amenity of "wave-inspired" recreational buildings along an organizing "horseshoe loop." The judges found every aspect of this project to be thoughtfully planned and executed, including all of the terrific circulation spaces between the beautifully designed buildings – the "boardwalk" details, the abundant landscaping, the architectural walls, built-in seating areas, the shared outdoor living spaces, on and on…. Congratulations on your Multi-Family Project of the Year!
