Shea Properties, a leading commercial real estate firm based in Aliso Viejo, California, was recently recognized with a Gold Best in American Living Award (BALA) by the National Association of Home Builders for Vantis, a 435-unit luxury apartment community located in Aliso Viejo.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the National Association of Home Builders,” said Greg Anderson, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Development for Shea Properties. “Vantis is a dynamic community that provides industry-leading amenities, contemporary design, and outstanding customer service. We were able to assemble an amazing team of construction, architectural, and design professionals to help turn our vision into a reality.”

Vantis Apartments includes a mix of studio, one and two bedroom units that range in size from 567-1,433 square feet, along with a handful spectacular penthouse plans with soaring two-level ceiling heights. The apartments feature contemporary, open concept floor plans, wood-style plank flooring, quartz countertops, designer tile backsplashes, stainless appliances and high-end finishes throughout.

With a focus on open-air relaxation and entertainment, Vantis includes a host of class-leading amenities like a state-of-the-art fitness and conditioning club, two beautiful pool and spa areas, a rooftop deck that overlooks the Saddleback Mountains, two distinct resident lounges with indoor and outdoor space, themed courtyards and so much more. Vantis Apartments were designed by Architects Orange and built by Snyder Langston. The interior spaces were designed by H. Hendy Associates, and the landscape designed by Urban Arena.

Now in its 34th year, the BALA awards recognize outstanding achievement by builders and design professionals in all sectors of the residential housing industry including single-family, custom, multifamily, affordable, remodeled, community, and interiors. Based on the principle that great homes start with great design, no matter cost or size, BALA winners spotlight what building industry professionals need to know to set their projects apart and hit the mark with today’s highly educated and discerning home buyers. Award winners were announced this month during the annual NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida.
