Capstone Building Corp., an Alabama-based multi-family construction contractor, has received two Aurora Awards for the company’s 1100 South Boulevard multi-family project in Charlotte from the annual Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) competition. The development received an Aurora for Best Multi-Family Housing Community Over 60 Density Units Per Acre and won Best in State for North Carolina.
The Aurora Awards annually honor architectural design, interior design, and planning excellence throughout the Southeastern United States and Eastern Caribbean. A panel of six building industry leaders select winners who demonstrate innovation, creativity, attention to detail, and overall distinction. This year’s competition drew 335 entries in 57 categories, including commercial, office space, renovation, mixed-use, affordable, multi-family, site planning, single family and custom home.
“We are honored that our multi-family construction on 1100 South was recognized at this year’s Aurora Awards,” Capstone CEO Jay Chapman said in a statement. “Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, yet the modern design and superior build of 1100 South stood out against all other projects in North Carolina to win Best in State.”
Also honored were Cambridge Development Partners as the developer and Humphreys & Partners Architect. The 346,595 sq. ft. project was completed in March, 2015.
