Award Wins Highlight KTGY’s Design Excellence in Attached & Detached Single-Family Homes

IRVINE, CALIF. – (RealEstateRama) — International award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning is pleased to announce that Timber in Newark, Calif., built by visionary California homebuilder Trumark Homes and designed by KTGY, received top honors at the 2016 Building Industry Association (BIA) Bay Area Excellence in Home Building Awards earlier this month. Timber received the “Multi-Product Community of the Year” Award and “Best Architectural Design – Multi-Family” Award. The community also received an award for “Best Signage.”

“Trumark Homes is honored to be recognized with these exceptional awards for our Timber community and partnership with KTGY,” said Mark Higgins, senior vice president, sales and marketing for Trumark Homes. “We were able to capitalize on Newark’s emergence as a key market in Alameda County introducing new homes to meet buyer demand in the area. With more than 150 homes sold to date, we anticipate the remaining inventory moving quickly as Timber becomes a thriving community desired for its proximity to transportation, major employment centers and entertainment options.”

Targeting executives and multi-generational families seeking an enhanced lifestyle and flexibility, Timber offers a selection of medium-density single-family detached homes and higher-density multifamily townhomes for sale within a short distance of the Dumbarton Bridge, AC Transit and the Dumbarton Express. The new community consists of 80 for-sale townhomes (Canopy at Timber) and 84 for-sale single-family detached homes (Shade at Timber) with six different floor plans ranging in size from three bedrooms, three baths with 1,540 square feet to four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths with 2,405 square feet. The development of Timber marked the first new development in Newark in more than a decade.
