The prestigious awards are selected by a panel of top industry experts who reviewed more than 575 entries from around the world.
Tesoro Viejo won an Award of Merit in three categories: Best Special Use Project for The Hub, Tesoro Viejo’s Welcome Center; Best Recreation Use Facility/Amenity for the Ranch House, the resort-style clubhouse/recreation center; and Masterplan Community of the Year.
“Gold Nugget Award winners reflect our industry’s best, brightest and most innovative architects, planners and builder/developers,” said Lisa Parrish, judging chairperson and Gold Nugget ceremonies administrator.
Now in its 57th year, Gold Nugget Awards is the largest and most prestigious competition of its kind in the nation. It honors design and planning achievements in community and home design, green-built housing, site planning, commercial, retail, mixed-use development and specialty housing categories.
