Santa Clarita Community Is Noted For New Home Design & Community Quality In Both The Best In American Living Awards (BALA) And The Nationals Awards

SANTA CLARITA, CA, February 15, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Arista at Aliento by Pardee Homes Los Angeles Ventura has won high honors in two prestigious national competitions. A Silver Award winner in the Best In American Living Awards (BALA) program, Arista was honored as a Single-Family Community of 100 homes or more. In The Nationals, Arista won additional Silver Awards for excellence in new home design and community marketing.

Winners in both competitions were celebrated January 9-10 at the International Builders’ Show (IBS). Held in Orlando, Florida, IBS is an annual conference and exposition presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

“BALA is a highly regarded program that is dedicated to great design, and we are delighted to be recognized by its judges,” noted Dave Little, Division President of Pardee Homes Los Angeles Ventura. “I commend the Pardee LA Ventura team and our excellent project consultants for the skills and dedication that created Arista!”

BALA judge Susan Bady, a senior editor with Professional Builder and Custom Builder, said judges were particularly taken with Arista’s setting and amenities. “Pardee worked thoughtfully to integrate new homes and recreational opportunities with the natural surroundings,” she said.

“The architecture takes advantage of the prominent hilltop location, with Farmhouse, Adobe, and Spanish styles that infuse the contemporary architecture with a flavor of Old California,” Bady added. “Plus, residents have parks, trails, and a lavish recreational center within walking distance.”

Arista also earned the winners’ spotlight at IBS with three Silver Awards in The Nationals, for: sales center design; Plan Three’s architectural design; and Plan One’s model home interior merchandising. Judges reviewed 1335 entries from across North America for The Nationals, which is sponsored by The National Sales and Marketing Council of NAHB.

“Arista offers solid value at an attainable price point for families–this is attractive both in the Santa Clarita market and to judges reviewing the best of the best in new home development across the country,” said Lisa Parrish, Judging Chair and program executive for The Nationals. “We congratulate Arista’s achievements in a remarkably competitive national field!”

Arista’s design team includes: WHA, architecture; Yolanda Landrum Interior Design, model interiors; LunaPearl Studio, sales center design; and BrightView, model complex landscape design. The Arista project team also includes Outdoor Dimensions, signage; and Greenhaus, ad agency.

Honors in BALA and The Nationals add to accolades for Arista, which include Community of the Year designation in the 2017 SoCal Awards. The SoCal Awards recognize new home design and marketing excellence from throughout Southern California, and Arista competed in a field of 460 entries.
