Taylor Morrison had an exciting evening at the recent awards ceremony for the 2013 Tampa Bay Builders Association Parade of Homes. The company was awarded Grand Prize in the $401,000-$450,000 category for its new Hemingway model in Channing Park. The model also won Best Floor Plan in the “Best of Class” category by having the highest overall score in each judging category.
“We are so pleased and honored by these awards,” said Cammie Longenécker, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison West Florida. “We’ve been receiving very positive comments and feedback for our Hemingway model, and these awards further confirm its popular design.”
Taylor Morrison had even more to celebrate with the Daphene model in Oak Creek winning a merit award in the $251,000-$275,000 category.
This year’s Parade of Homes was the largest in recent history with 115 models from 33 builders in 75 communities throughout Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties. This represents a 30% increase over the previous year’s entries and more than double the 51 models in 2010.
The Hemingway model at Channing Park is located at 17405 Chelsea Downs Circle in Lithia. It is part of Taylor Morrison’s Manor Collection of upscale, estate-sized homes featuring traditional detailing and multi-purpose spaces.
