KWA Construction Earns Silver for NAHB’s Best 50+ Independent Living Community

McDermott Crossing Deemed Exemplary for “innovative design for the active adult and service-enriched markets.”

KWA Construction’s McDermott Crossing was recently named one of the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) “Best of the Best” for its carefully crafted blend of innovative design and active-senior community living. McDermott Crossing earned a silver award in NAHB’s 50+ Independent Living Community category.

“KWA submitted McDermott Crossing’s NAHB award application because we think the property perfectly represents the rising demand for luxury aging-in-place alternatives for active seniors,” said KWA Construction President Keller Webster.

McDermott Crossing’s country-club-like property was not only built to provide its residents with resort-style amenities, such as landscaped courtyards, walking paths, covered lounge areas, a fitness center, coffee bar, and business and banking centers, but it was also constructed with innovative building solutions, such as a new-to-market ZIP system roof and wall sheathing. In addition, McDermott Crossing is LEED and Texas Green Belt Certified.

The NAHB awarded McDermott Crossing, located in Plano, Texas, with a silver recognition for its innovative construction and effective blend of modern design and elegant luxury. The 123-unit, senior-specific property offers residents the conveniences of apartment-style living with all of the comforts of home.
