Affordable

    Villa Flores isn't just a multiple-award-winning affordable senior housing community. It's also the prototype for a group of projects to be built on the same church-owned block in downtown Los Angeles.

     
  • Urban residence, Lawrence, Kan.

    Looks like a bunch of friends got together and put something really unique together, the judges said. "It's a slam dunk."
