NAHB Best in American Living Names Aiya Among Top Multifamily Communities
Scottsdale, AZ (Feb. 23, 2022) – The National Association of Home Builders Design Committee and the 2021 Best in American Living™ Awards judges announced today that Aiya, a 360-unit community developed by Scottsdale-based The Wolff Company, has won a 2021 Best in American Living Award. More than 140 single-family, multifamily, interior design, remodeling, and community projects were honored this month at the 2021 Best in American Living™ Awards (BALA) ceremony at the 2022 International Builders’ Show, hosted by NAHB in Orlando. Aiya was honored with a silver award for Multifamily Development up to 3 Stories and was recognized for its clean, contemporary aesthetic, expansive open areas and amenities, and its Neo-Traditional design that helps to formulate a sense of place and fit within the larger language of the community.
Inspired by the beauty of the Sonoran Desert and the elegant design of a resort spa, Aiya is a desert retreat in Gilbert, AZ that balances personal comforts with inviting social spaces. Small touches of natural elements and textures, like petrified wood and copper accents, highlight the impressive array of community amenities. Environmental impact mitigation was taken during the design and construction of the project. Shade trees are used throughout the property and are strategically placed to help reduce the need for cooling. Roofing materials with a high SRI value were utilized, along with low-water usage landscape and onsite water retention in both above- and below-ground tanks. Aiya’s clubhouse offers a game room, lounges, kitchen, and a fitness studio. Waterfall and fire features around the pool transform the outdoor space into a desert oasis.
