"We are also seeing fresh and contemporary senior living designs, which help with attracting new residents in this competitive market."
Finalists were selected from entries in 43 categories representing single-family homes, rental housing, service-enriched housing, lifestyle features that 55+ buyers look for and marketing activity, plus four categories representing individuals and firms.
