Gatherings® by Beazer Homes Wins Two ‘Best of 55+ Housing’ Awards

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) honors Beazer Homes, one of the nation’s largest home builders, with two Best of 55+ Housing Awards for stellar design and industry leadership in Gatherings, Beazer’s 55+ active-adult condominium brand. The NAHB’s Best of 55+ Housing is the only national awards program in the 55+ sector, recognizing those that best address the needs of the nation’s fastest-growing demographic. Gatherings earned a Silver Award for best attached home under 1,700 square feet and the coveted One to Watch award honoring the industry’s most impactful leader under the age of 40.

Award-Winning Design

The Chestnut is one of four floorplans available in the Gatherings product mix. It is a consistently top-selling plan at Orlando’s Gatherings of Lake Nona, a master-planned community focused on healthy living in a multi-generational setting.

“The Chestnut is one of the most popular homes for buyers seeking the comforts they have grown accustomed to, but in a smaller footprint,” says Katrina Stroup, VP of business development for Gatherings. “The Chestnut is a corner unit in the low-rise condo building, allowing for abundant natural light and a spacious balcony. The dedicated dining room is unique in a home of this size, and is a highlight of the Chestnut. Through this optimally-designed home, we are able to invite owners to reduce their home-related worries and to focus on their want-to-dos rather than their have-to-dos.”

Award-Winning Leadership

Gatherings was honored with the One to Watch award, identifying exemplary leaders under 40 who positively impact the home building space for those 55 and better.

“This honor demonstrates the innovation, performance, and community involvement that personify the Gatherings brand,” said Allan Merrill, president and CEO of Beazer Homes. “We’re immeasurably proud of the contributions of leaders on the Gatherings team to Beazer, their local communities, and the 55+ housing industry.”
