Meeks + Partners Project Receives Honors
Judges for the 2014 Gold Nugget Awards have named Meeks + Partners as an Award of Merit winner in its annual competition, which honors architectural design and planning excellence and draws entries from throughout the United States and internationally. Meeks + Partners earned the award for 25Twenty, which was honored in the campus housing project category. Chosen from the elite pool of Merit Award winners, Grand Awards will be announced on June 26th as a feature highlight of PCBC®, the nation's largest regional conference and trade show for the real estate development field.
Located in Lubbock, Texas, 25Twenty is the premier off-campus student community serving Texas Tech University. In designing the project, M+P sought to maximize densities while maintaining an open, amenity rich environment. The four-story wrap design houses over 560 students. Two amenity rich courtyards encourage interaction with a resort-style pool, outdoor cooking stations, a pro-style volleyball court, multiple horseshoe pits and an outdoor fire pit. Units all come with private bathrooms, open concept kitchen and living spaces. Possibly the most appealing and luxurious amenity of the community, the 9,600 square foot clubhouse was designed with every possible student need in mind. Located on the ground level and fronting the retail spaces with the adjacent, mixed-use parking garage, the clubhouse goes above and beyond to offer its student community amenities not found elsewhere.
"Gold Nugget Award winners reflect our industry's best, brightest and most innovative architects, planners and builder/developers," said Judging Chairman and Gold Nugget ceremonies administrator Lisa Parrish. Now in its 51st year, GNA is the largest and most prestigious competition of its kind in the nation. It honors design and planning achievements in community and home design, green-built housing, site planning, commercial, retail, mixed-use development and specialty housing categories. Winners this year were chosen from 600 entries from around the world.
