The multihousing industry has had a remarkable year of renewed optimism in the housing and rental markets. The Arizona Multihousing Association brings apartment industry leaders together for one night a year at its annual Tribute Gala to celebrate the successes of the teams, individuals, volunteers and communities that are best in class.
On Thursday night, a sold out crowd of more than 1,200 apartment industry leaders from around Arizona gathered for the annual Tribute Gala to learn who would be honored as the best individuals, teams, and communities from the list of finalists. These winners were judged in a competitive judging process and the 22 winners were selected from the more than 400 statewide nominations.
This year, the AMA added a few new categories including one for best renovated property and affordable community.
“As the apartment industry continues to grow in Arizona, we are seeing large investments in renovations and in affordable housing for workers. It’s important for our industry to recognize these new housing options and the influence these communities have on the greater community,” said Tom Simplot, President and CEO of the Arizona Multihousing Association.
