The mantel at Mark-Taylor got a little heavier after this year’s Arizona Multihousing Association Tributes dinner, as the company was honored with four awards including the prestigious Developer’s Award for its Parcland Crossing community.
“These wins reinforce what we already know – we have great properties and committed, loyal team members who make these spectacular places to live,” said Mark-Taylor President Dale Phillips.
Parcland Crossing in Chandler was presented with the Developer’s Award, the recognition that caps the night’s festivities at the AMA’s annual event. The Developer’s Award honors the best new community developed between 2011 and 2012.
The 383 unit-project was a collaboration of Mark-Taylor and Kitchell Development, and was built at a pivotal time in Arizona real estate, as one of the first new large-scale, luxury rental communities to be built in more than two years.
Parcland Crossing has surpassed occupancy goals and is anticipated to reach 90%-plus occupancy just 12 months after opening in July 2012.
San Marbeya in Tempe was recognized as the Best Team and Community built between 1994 and 2004; Azul in Gilbert was recognized as the Best Team and Community built between 2005 and 2012; and Mark-Taylor’s Director of Service Support, Roger Nahrgang, was named the Regional Maintenance Supervisor of the Year.
In selecting the honorees, judges of the Tributes Awards consider factors including professional presentation, industry experience, industry education, problem-solving capabilities and impact on the properties.
