50+ Housing Awards

NAHB’s Building for Boomers & Beyond: 50+ Housing Symposium

The 65th annual NAHB’s Building for Boomers & Beyond: 50+ Housing Symposium was held in Philadelphia, PA, on April 28th.  Housing projects catering to older consumers that have excelled in categories of innovative design, marketing, and development are recognized each year in what is considered to be the building industry’s most prestigious award program in the nation.  Over 62,000 professionals from the building industry attended this year’s event, making this symposium a successful one even during a time when the housing market is said to be experiencing slowed growth. There were a number of categories recognized this year, and 41 impressive projects received gold awards and 39 silver award presentations. 

The 2010 International Builders’ & Nextbuild is scheduled for January 19-22, 2010, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and registration to attend will begin sometime in early July. Dates and locations for future events are already set for the next 10-plus years.  An abbreviated list of Gold and Silver award winners from the 2009 50+ Housing Symposium is listed below, along with a link to their site when possible.
