– After having presented Community Dynamics' Sonria with a Gold Nugget Award of Merit for Best Detached Home on a Compact Lot at the 2004 Pacific Coast Builder's Conference, the building industry's oldest and largest design competition,
turned the spotlight on the same community in 2005, this time recognizing the now completed development with yet another Gold Nugget Award of Merit for Best Affordable Housing Community Under 30 du /acre. Addressing a capacity crowd of more than 1,200 industry professionals from across the western United States, Jeffrey De Mure, PCBC President, recognized winners' "awe-inspiring solutions to difficult design and planning issues."

Loren Bloch, Community Dynamics' President, noted that the development's dual recognition in the Best Detached Home and Best Affordable Housing Community categories reflects the Company's commitment to excellence. "We were able to deliver both remarkable affordability and award-winning design that took us to highest levels of one of our industry's most sophisticated design competitions against top of the line market rate competition," he said.

Designed by KTGY Group, Inc., Sonria is a charming collection of simply designed single family Spanish Revival homes fronting on landscape pedestrian friendly paseos. 22 of the homes sold at prices affordable to low income households, and the remaining 16 sold at market rate pricing nearly $200,000 higher than their low income counterparts. Bloch said, "Sonria received an outstanding response in the marketplace, debunking the notion that you cannot mix low income and market rate housing in the same community."
