The southeastern Loudoun community of Brambleton recently took top honors at the prestigious Great American Living Awards (GALA) when the master-planned development won the Planned Community of the Year award for the fifth consecutive year, as well as two other awards.
Judges look for special features, land planning and landscape, amenities and open space, and may look at marketing components, in arriving at a decision on the winner for the highest honor of this annual competition.
Brambleton also captured the Best Sales Office Award for the design of its Builder Showcase and Welcome Center, which features its home builders and interactive displays of community living. An award of merit was also bestowed upon Brambleton, the nation's first verizon-enhanced fiber optic community, for its online advertising campaign by Delucchi Plus.
The annual recognition event for the building industry was held Oct. 21 in Fairfax and sponsored by the Maryland-National Capital Building Industry Association, the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association, and the Washington Metropolitan Sales & Marketing Council. Judged by a large panel of professionals in the industry, the GALA competition is considered the most prestigious residential design, sales, and marketing event of its type in the Washington, DC metro area.
The GALA honors are among numerous awards taken by Brambleton, which also earned the Excellence in Construction honors from the Metropolitan Washington and Virginia Chapters of the Associated Builders and Contractors, the MAME awards (Major Achievement in Marketing Excellence) and the PLANET tribute for comprehensive landscape design.
