Reviled East Sac “McVillage” wins national community design award
East Sacramento and Midtown residents who vigorously opposed McKinley Village, the 336-home housing development in a former orchard along Business 80, may be surprised to hear the reviled project has won a national design award.
Currently under construction, the project received the National Association of Home Builders’ Nationals Gold Award for the best in the nation On the Boards Community, defined as a project under construction, but not yet open for sale or rent. New home sales are anticipated to begin in late fall 2015.
Kevin Carson, President of The New Home Company of Northern California said, “This award recognizes that the McKinley Village plan creates a unique sense of place in a prime infill location. We are excited about creating a neighborhood that will offer a range of new home opportunities for people who want to live in town close to jobs, schools, retail locations, restaurants, and a range of other attractions.”
