Judges Statement:
With an impressive variety of new homes being completed in this planned community, the land plan consists of an ambitious, 100-acre Phase II
addition. Located between the existing Phase I residential and office park, the plan consists of 2,800 residential units in an array of products and types.
The land strategy responds to the emerging economy by transforming current residential unit allocations into upscale rental neighborhoods. The plan makes use of
available land for both small-lot single family detached homes and moderate-density luxury condominiums. It creates walkability and pedestrian visual interest by using
a pedestrian-scale street grid and by connecting front stoops and building lobbies to tree-lined streets and paseos, linking residents to parks, recreation, and the village
center. That center is intended as Playa’s focal and will include an upscale grocery, movie theaters, boutiques, and restaurants and offices.
The judges applauded the plan’s ambitiousness, cohesion, and clear intention for a knit-together neighborhood. One jury member who often drives past the site
summed it up when he said, “Community is already happening here.”
