Shearwater Takes Home National Design and Construction Awards

September 28th, 2018 · Leave a Comment

Shearwater, the new master-planned residential community off C.R. 210, was recently awarded prestigious Aurora Awards for design by the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) and the Southeast Building Conference (SEBC), as well as receiving two Awards of Merit for innovation in design, planning and development at the 2018 Gold Nugget Awards. Both industry-leading accolades celebrate Shearwater’s purposely-designed and crafted 1,500-acre community that has quickly become one of the fastest growing communities in northern St. Johns County.

Developed by Freehold Communities, Shearwater was designed to promote healthy living, community engagement and a connection to the outdoors. Freehold worked with well-known Northeast Florida companies to bring its vision for an immersive lifestyle community to life. Jacksonville-based planning and architecture firm, ELM | Ervin Lovett Miller (ELM), was Shearwater’s community master planner, amenity architect, and community landscape architect. As the project amenities and hardscape contractor, Dicky Smith & Co. (DSC) built the 12.5-acre amenity center, neighborhood entrances and parks. Ansana Interior Design (Ansana) provided interior design services for the community amenities.

At the Aurora Awards, Shearwater’s notable Kayak Club won the Grand Award for Best Recreation Facility or Amenity and Shearwater’s overall masterplan concept took home the Silver Aurora Award for Best Community Site Plan.

The prestigious Aurora Awards are presented annually by the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) and the Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) to recognize excellence in planning, design, and construction in projects across the southeastern United States and the Eastern Caribbean. The awards gala is an event celebrating design for living and this year, the competition drew nearly 400 entries in 61 categories.

Shearwater also won Awards of Merit for Best Community Land Plan and Best Indoor/Outdoor Lifestyle for a Community at the Pacific Coast Builder Conference’s 55th Annual Gold Nugget Awards. Known as the “Academy Awards” of the building industry, the PCBC’s Gold Nugget Awards are presented annually to innovators in design, planning and development. The competition is open to builders, developers, architects, and land planners with communities and projects across the United States and internationally.
