Entries were judged by the following criteria:

  • Architectural design
  • Common areas
  • Community entrance
  • Floor plan function and design
  • Interior merchandising and finishing
  • Livability
  • Overall master/site plan
  • Recreational facilities

The 2014 award winners were selected by a distinguished panel of industry experts.

Due to their recent award recognition, Soleil Laurel Canyon is now eligible to win the Grand Aurora Award in its category. The winning entry will be showcased during the 2014 Aurora Awards Black Tie Gala on Saturday, July 26, 2014, at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Tallahassee, Fla.
