Trumark Communities recently announced that Wallis Ranch, the 184-acre master planned community in Dublin, CA, was named “Master Planned Community of the Year” at the 54th Annual Gold Nugget Awards presented by PCBC, the largest annual homebuilding trade show in the Western United States. The awards gala, held on Thursday, June 29, 2017, marks Trumark’s trifecta of wins for the prestigious title at the building industry’s three most esteemed annual awards ceremonies. In addition to the Gold Nugget Awards, Wallis Ranch was named “Master Planned Community of the Year” by the 2017 National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) Nationals Awards and the 2017 Building Industry Association (BIA) Excellence Awards.
Recognizing the best in community improvement through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development, the Gold Nugget Awards are a highlight of the annual two-day PCBC Conference held at the San Diego Convention Center, which draws more than 10,000 respected industry professionals across North America and beyond.
“Earning this caliber of recognition from such a prestigious industry organization like PCBC is what fuels our passion for conceptualizing and bringing to life forward-thinking communities like Wallis Ranch that set a new precedent for lifestyle-enhancing amenities and design,” said Michael Maples, principal of Trumark Companies. “The culmination of these three prominent accolades would not have been possible without the unwavering support and dedication of our entire team at Trumark as well as our industry partners.”
Located in Dublin, California, Wallis Ranch is comprised of seven neighborhoods and a total of 806 homes by some of the nation’s most esteemed builders and master developed by Trumark Communities. At the heart of Wallis Ranch stands the Kindred House, a more than 17,000 square feet indoor/outdoor amenity space dedicated to relaxation, fitness, meetings, dining and entertainment. Featuring an emphasis on wellness and concierge-type services, Wallis Ranch welcomes residents to participate in thoughtfully-planned events and gatherings, such as family movie nights and morning yoga on the event lawn.
“We couldn’t be more proud to accept this Gold Nugget award recognizing Wallis Ranch as ‘Master Planned Community of the Year’ in a category among some of the most recognizable developments in the country,” said Gregg Nelson, principal of Trumark Companies. “Wallis Ranch is truly a testament to the passion and innovation that drives our team and this award is certainly validation for the hard work everyone involved in this project has devoted over the past several years.”
