Christopher Todd Communities On Ellsworth Wins Gold Nugget Award

Competition Recognizes Those Who Improve Communities Through Exceptional Concepts

Mesa, Ariz. (Aug, 3, 2020) — Judges with the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC) Gold Nugget competition have bestowed Christopher Todd Communities On Ellsworth with the Grand Award, the top honor, in the Best Single Family For Rent Community category.

“Gold Nugget Award winners reflect our industry’s best, brightest and most innovative architects, planners and builder/developers,” said Judging Chairman and Gold Nugget ceremonies administrator Lisa Parrish.

Now in its 57th year, the 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. Winners this year were chosen from 575 entries from around the world.

“It is humbling to be recognized nationally for a concept about which we are so passionate. We set out to create a new way to live in the multifamily industry and this award means we’re making great strides in delivering a home and lifestyle choice that is resonating with the industry,” said Todd Wood, CEO of Christopher Todd Communities. Christopher Todd Communities has developed, has under construction or in the pipeline 12 such communities.

This is the first community developed under the exclusive partnership between national homebuilder Taylor Morrison Home Corporation (NYSE: TMHC) and multifamily innovator Christopher Todd Communities. “We’re excited about our early efforts as recognized with Christopher Todd Communities On Ellsworth,” said Taylor Morrison National President Build-To-Division Darin Rowe. “This particular community and future projects in the pipeline across the country allow us to do what we do best—source, entitle and develop land and construct quality homes. We look forward to reaching a larger portion of consumers and life-stages than we would through traditional home construction alone.”

Taylor Morrison is the land acquirer, developer and builder, while Christopher Todd Communities leverages their branding, marketing and proven community management expertise to create a community expected to—based on history—lease up faster than average, have higher resident satisfaction and bring enhanced value to potential future ownership groups.

Christopher Todd Communities On Ellsworth, which is under construction near Ellsworth and University off of the Loop 202, earned the honor based on the home and lifestyle vision of the community, which will open in early 2021. The luxury gated rental community will be comprised of 145 single-family, one- and two-bedroom smart homes with pet doors and private backyards which are great for social distancing. Because the homes are all single-story there are no noisy neighbors above or below, a common complaint in the multifamily industry. Smart home features include doorbell camera, keyless door entry, and entertainment, lighting and climate control via smart phone or tablet. Each home also comes with highspeed internet with speeds up to 1000/1000 mbps and DirecTV. The community amenities include a resort-style pool and spa, covered ramada with fireplace and flat screen TV’s, event lawn and a Fitness Studio. The home and community features also help minimize germ exposure as it’s easy for residents to get from their car into their home with minimal interface or exposure.
