ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rampart, an Associa company, proudly announces that two of its communities – Pointe Alexis and McNulty Lofts – have been selected winners in the 2013 Florida Communities of Excellence Awards.
“It is my pleasure to congratulate these great communities on the good work they do,” said Patricia DuBuque, president and CEO of Rampart. “Pointe Alexis and McNulty Lofts are strong communities with an active base of homeowners who consistently put community first. These awards validate their hard work and efforts. We are honored to be their association management company and have the pleasure of working alongside them for the betterment of community.”
- Pointe Alexis, located in Tarpon Springs, won as a small community in the ‘Family Friendly Programs & Initiatives’ category. Competing against other Florida communities, Pointe Alexis was recognized for promoting family participation and well-being throughout the community and among homeowners.
- McNulty Lofts, in downtown St. Petersburg, won the Trendsetter Award for innovation. McNulty Lofts is a former fire station renovated into a condominium high rise. Residents joined together with a vision to offset the building’s “factory” elements with the vibrancy of the downtown area around them. They brought downtown inside, decorating interior walls with more than 100 iconic photographs of St. Petersburg’s history. The distinctive décor is a juxtaposition of modern and historic that now echoes throughout the interior in a collection of “Then and Now” black and white photographs.
The Florida Community of Excellence Awards program recognizes the work and dedication of Florida’s condominium and homeowners associations. Associations are separated into two size classes as they compete in 10 award categories, including civic volunteerism & advocacy, family friendly programs & initiatives, communication & community, Florida-friendly landscaping, energy & water conservation, disaster preparedness, financial innovation and safety & security. Entries are judged by a panel of 32 independent experts from professional associations, business groups and state and local government agencies and departments volunteer their time to make the selections.
