Congratulations to our partners on their Innovator Awards

edr dinnerWEB The third annual Innovator Awards that spotlight excellence in the industry were held in Austin, Texas, at the 2013 InterFace Student Housing conference. A few of this year's winners include some of our partners. Congratulations to EdR, American Campus Communities, and Landmark Properties on their awards.

For on-campus housing, EdR took home the award for Most Creative Public-Private Financing for 929 – Johns Hopkins Medical Institute, and American Campus Communities took home the award for Best Public-Private Partnership Development for Portland State University.

For off-campus housing, EdR was honored with Best Vendor/Operator Solution for University Towers at North Carolina State University.

The Retreat at San Marcos was built by Landmark Properties and earned them the mac-daddy Best New Development of a Property with 200 Beds or Greater. After it was built, the property was bought and financed by American Campus Communities and earned them the award for Most Creative Financing. One property, two winners...double whammy!

Congratulations to everyone who was honored last week at the Innovator Awards. It's an honor to be amongst you in helping develop the student housing industry to be the best it can be.
