Perhaps the New York Daily News said it best. It described Mercedes House as bringing “architectural oomph” and “great architecture” to midtown Manhattan in a style that is “out of this world” and “nothing like this city has ever seen before.” New York City could use more architecture like this, its architecture critic wrote.

‘Say what you mean and mean what you say.” That’s just one of the concepts that Team Construction embraced as it set out to build a solid reputation and take a definitive step to create a standard in the roofing industry. If the name Team Construction doesn’t already say it all, the service this company provides does. Established as a predominately woman-owned company in 2006, Team Construction is known to be a contractor’s contractor within the Denver region. 

Star Lumber and Supply founder Earl Goebel had a sense that the city of Wichita, Kan., was ready for growth at the time he first set up shop in 1939. As most of the city’s development up to that point was in or near its downtown area, Goebel defied conventional wisdom by establishing his lumberyard on its outskirts.

It takes a special kind of contractor to move into the crowded south Florida market, and Facchina Construction of Florida is one such builder. The company, a division of Washington, D.C.-based Facchina Construction, has leveraged its respected name and portfolio of quality work into a strong position as one of the area’s most successful contractors in a number of market segments. And, as Vice President of Operations Joseph Graziosi explains, there still are multiple opportunities for the company to gain even more ground on the competition. 

Providing a higher-level product and service offering is what Driver Urban is all about. Specializing in the planning and construction of urban living environments in California, the company has been steadily making a name for itself in multifamily and mixed-use developments, senior and affordable housing, hospitality and student housing projects since it was founded two years ago. 

Building high-quality apartments in secondary and tertiary markets is a strategy that is proving successful for Vintala Partners and its new luxury apartment development called The District in south Baton Rouge, La., is an excellent example. The 312-unit development will offer luxury and innovation at an affordable price in an attractive location when it opens next summer.

At The Legacy Collection, Warmington Residential wanted to establish the unique character of the community and drive homebuyer interest – and it appears to be succeeding on both counts. The first new home opportunity in Ladera Ranch, Calif., in five years, the community was originally slated to include 28 home sites, but due to demand, an additional 20 home sites were obtained. Today, as sales releases have been accelerated to meet this demand, 43 of the 48 homes have been released for sale, and 36 have been sold.

“The Legacy Collection presented an opportunity for Warmington Residential to re-enter both the Orange County market and the luxury home market on spectacular custom lots with a product that showcased our ability to respond to consumers and provide what they really wanted, which was quite different from what was already available in the 8,500-plus home Ladera Ranch master plan,” Warmington Residential President and CEO Jim Warmington Jr. relates. “The neighborhood enabled us to prove to potential buyers, equity partners and lenders that despite the uncertainty in the market at the time the neighborhood was introduced, that Warmington could succeed by designing homes that catered to a niche market.”
