Godden Sudik Wins Big at Colorado Springs Parade of Homes

The Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs (HBA) announced the winners of the People’s Choice Awards and the Industry Awards of Excellence for the 2015 Parade of Homes. This year’s featured homes ranged in price from less than $150,000 to almost $1,700,000. Twenty-four builders presented 32 homes dispersed among 21 communities for the 61st Annual Parade of Homes.

Industry professionals from around the state judged the homes on a number of features including landscape design, floor plan, architectural exterior, and interior decorating. The coveted People’s Choice Awards is voted on each year by Parade of Homes attendees. The People’s Choice and Industry Awards of Excellence are both broken out into multiple categories divided by price point. Industry Awards of Excellence are then further divided among the following eight categories: Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, Best Interior Design, Best Exterior, Best Landscape Design, Best Architectural Exterior, Best Craftsmanship and Best Overall Home.

Designed by Godden Sudik and built by Century Communities, Lake of the Rockies is a new community in Monument boasting private open space adjacent to Monument Lake and within walking distance to Downtown Monument shops and dining. It’s situated West of I-25 and has incredible views of the mountains and easy access to Pike National Forest. It is slated to have two product types with 10 different floor plans. With an array of homes and plenty to do, this community will offer something for everyone. For more information on Lake of the Rockies click here. Brenda Harvey, who worked as the Project Manager, said, "what's special about this community is its location. It's nestled at the foothills on a lake. We took this environment into consideration when designing the elevations. We really wanted the homes to reflect and fit in with the beautiful natural environment that makes Lake of the Rockies so unique." Two plans were entered into the Parade of Homes competition.
