Grand Aurora Award

MIROMAR LAKES, Fla., August 9, 2017 – Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club has earned the 2017 Grand Aurora Award for Best Community Site Plan from the Southeast Building Conference.

Established in 1979, the Aurora Awards recognize achievements of the Southeast’s top builders, planners, architects, developers, designers, interior merchandisers and housing-related professionals.

The award category of Best Community Site Plan evaluates a community’s neighborhood character, environmental enhancement, circulation, land uses, topography and innovative solutions. Miromar Lakes is a master-planned community inspired by the Italian and French Rivieras, located just north of Naples, Fla., and features brilliantly designed custom waterfront homes, resort-style amenities and a dynamic social calendar.

“The Grand Aurora Award is a tremendous honor, and we’re thankful the Southeast Building Conference recognized our attention to detail in the development of Miromar Lakes,” said Margaret Antonier, president and CEO of Miromar Development. “Our slogan is ‘We are where you want to be,’ and every day we strive to make Miromar Lakes an extraordinary community like no other.”

The Aurora Awards attract entrants from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and the eastern Caribbean. Awards were presented July 28 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center near Orlando.

A key element in Miromar Lakes’ award submission was the recent development of The Marina on the Peninsula, which is home to bocce courts, a fitness trail, a gathering place with a fire pit and entertainment shade pavilions. A parterre garden at the Marina leads to a roundabout featuring the kinetic sculpture, “Dare to Be.”

Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club has received more than 170 local, regional and national awards, including the Gold Award for #1 Community in the United States from the National Association of Home Builders. It is the only Florida community in history to win this top honor. The Beach Clubhouse at Miromar Lakes also received the Gold Award from the NAHB for the Best Clubhouse in the United States. No other community has ever won both awards.
