Sacramento, Calif., January 22, 2015 -- McKinley Village, the urban infill neighborhood of 336 homes in the heart of the Sacramento region, has received the National Association of Home Builders’ (“NAHB”) Nationals Gold Award for the best in the nation “On the Boards Community”, defined as a project under construction, but not yet open for sale or rent. The award was announced on January 21, 2015 at the NAHB’s annual International Builders’ Show held in Las Vegas.

“This award recognizes that the McKinley Village plan creates a unique sense of place in a prime infill location. We are excited about creating a neighborhood that will offer a range of new home opportunities for people who want to live in town close to jobs, schools, retail locations, restaurants, and a range of other attractions,” said Kevin Carson, President of The New Home Company of Northern California.
“We are pleased that McKinley Village has received national recognition for its design and architecture. This award is a credit to our design team and to the City of Sacramento. We look forward to the vision of McKinley Village becoming a reality in the months ahead,” added Phil Angelides, President of Riverview Capital Investments.
