NAHB Awards - 7INK and Waterstone of Lexington

Two Projects Shine Bright at NAHB Awards

Two outstanding Cranshaw-built projects emerged victorious from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in February at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.


7INK stole the spotlight at the Best in American Living Awards Program by clinching not one but two national awards during the event. The project secured Platinum/1st Place for Innovative Housing, a testament to its groundbreaking approach in addressing contemporary housing needs. Additionally, 7INK was honored with Best in the Region for the North Atlantic, highlighting its superiority and excellence in New England.

Judges, deeply impressed by 7INK’s ingenuity, lauded the project’s ability to tackle multifaceted housing challenges faced by young individuals, all while maintaining architectural interest. The innovative exterior design coupled with efficient communal living arrangements garnered acclaim from the judging panel.

Congratulations to the team behind 7INK, including National Development, Elkus|Manfredi Architects and Copley Wolff Design Group.

Waterstone of Lexington:

Waterstone of Lexington received a distinguished accolade as well. The NAHB honored Waterstone of Lexington as the Silver Winner in the independent living category during the Best of 55+ Housing Awards Program. This recognition underscores Waterstone’s commitment to creating an exceptional living environment tailored to the needs of senior citizens.

Kudos to the entire project team, including National Development, EPOCH Senior Living, and Elkus | Manfredi Architects.

Both 7INK and Waterstone of Lexington epitomize innovation and excellence, enrich communities and set new benchmarks in multi-family construction.
