Olympians aren’t the only ones hoping for gold this summer. Select multifamily developers and designers also had the opportunity to bring home the win in the form of a Gold Nugget from PCBC, the Pacific Coast’s regional conference and trade show for real estate development.

The program, which has recognized top innovators in design, planning, and development for the past 60 years, announced its 2024 grand honorees at an awards ceremony June 19 in Anaheim, California.

This year’s competition drew 675 entries in over 60 categories, including multifamily, mixed-use, affordable, single-family production, interior design, custom homes, commercial, renovations, and site planning. Jurors selected several merit winners in each grouping and elevated one project to become the grand winner.

The judging panel included some of the industry’s top designers, planners, and builders: Jamie Goldman, principal at Kephart; Donald Ruthroff, founding principal at Design Story Spaces; Karin Sumrall, senior planning and design manager at Hillwood Communities; Pierrette Tierney, regional senior vice president of development at AMH; Kimberly Timmons-Beutner, principal and creative director at Kimberly Timmons Interiors; and Symone Strong, associate editor at BUILDER and Multifamily Executive.
