The most prestigious competition in the home building industry, The Nationals, has named Starkey Ranch a finalist for its top honor - 2016 Master Planned Community of the Year. Starkey Ranch is one of six contenders in North America for the award. The winner will be announced at the International Builders Show, the annual conference of the National Association of Home Builders, in Las Vegas on January 19. This year The Nationals received over 1,300 entries across 57 categories.
“The Starkey Ranch team set out to create a place that truly stands out from other new-home communities, and this award validates our efforts,” says project director Matt Call. “We’re honored to be the only finalist east of the Mississippi.”
A team of judges selected the Community of the Year finalists based on entries in seven categories—logo design, brochure, website, signage, sales center and landscape design. Starkey Ranch is designed and marketed as a place that connects residents with nature and with each other—honoring its Old Florida ranching roots, but providing the latest new-home designs, amenities and programs for active families of all ages.
