Robert Simons, AIA, President of SVA Architects, states, "It is an honor to work with American Family Housing and to deliver an entire community to well-deserving veterans, which includes a community room with kitchenette, laundry room, and offices."
The 2016 Gold Nugget Awards ceremony, which is part of the annual Pacific Coast Builder's Conference, was on June 23, 2016, the eve of the project's groundbreaking. The Gold Nugget Awards is deemed the nation's oldest and most prestigious design competition. Potter's Lane was a Merit Award winner in the Best on-the-Boards Multifamily Community (up to 50 du/acre) and Building Industry Community Spirit Award categories.
SVA's Paul Zaleski, Associate AIA, Senior Associate Partner, states, "The units are configured to create a central, private courtyard with amenities for learning and socialization. The courtyard is envisioned as the 'life' of the building. The planning organization resembles a modern day court home, which allowed utilitarian methods for the site to be achieved economically."
