Arterro at La Costa in Carlsbad Wins National Honors for Design Excellence

Davidson Communities of Del Mar, Calif. honored for design excellence at Arterro at La Costa in Carlsbad

Online PR News – 06-July-2014 – San Diego, CA – Selected from a field of over 600 entrants from the United States and around the world, Arterro at La Costa was singled out by the 2014 Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC) for excellence in design, planning and development. This year’s PCBC Gold Nugget awards honored Arterro as a merit award winner in two categories: Project of the Year for detached housing, and Single Family Detached Home of the Year over 4,000 square feet for Arterro Plan 4.

Since 1963, the Gold Nugget awards program has acknowledged innovation and imagination in the home building industry. Since its founding in 1978, Davidson Communities has won numerous Gold Nugget grand and merit awards for new home neighborhoods throughout Southern California.

Davidson’s award-winning team at Arterro includes architect R. Douglas Mansfield, AIA; planners Hunsaker & Associates; and interior design and merchandising specialists Design Line Interiors.

“We are truly honored to be recognized by the Gold Nugget award judges,” said Bill Davidson, President of Davidson Communities, a privately held home builder headquartered in Del Mar. “Because Arterro is an elevated site, the view corridors vary from house-to-house. To capture the very best natural light, views and breeze, we designed each individual home with the master bedroom in either the front or back of the house. We took the time to do things a little differently here.”

Now selling in its third phase, Arterro ranges from 3,288 to 4,434 square feet, with three to six bedrooms, 3 ½ to 5 ½ baths and a three-car garage. Situated on home sites that average 7,000 square feet, Arterro is priced from the high $900,000s.

The 63 homes at Arterro comprise a 22-acre residential element of the new, mixed-use La Costa Town Square project, which features a 253,800 square-foot community shopping center and two office buildings totaling 50,000 square feet. La Costa Town Square is scheduled to open later this year.

Arterro at La Costa is located at 3442 Sitio Sandia, at the east end of La Costa Ave., near the junction of La Costa and Rancho Santa Fe Road. Three model homes are open for viewing daily until 6 p.m.
