SAN FRANCISCO (June 24, 2016) – The New Home Company (NEW HOME; NYSE: NWHM) was honored last night with a Grand Award for “Residential Community of the Year-Master Plan” for The Cannery in Davis, Calif., at the 2016 Gold Nugget Awards presented during PCBC, the building industry’s leading conference, trade show and meeting place. Now in its 53rd year, the Gold Nugget Awards recognize the best in architectural design and planning excellence, drawing entries from throughout the United States and around the world.

The Cannery is an innovative mixed-used community with plans for 583 residences and featuring a seven-acre Urban Farm on the site of a former tomato cannery. The community features a land plan that is the first of its scale in Davis in more than 20 years. It also includes retail shops, recreation center, outdoor amphitheaters and miles of trails. As part of the working farm, a facility called “The Barn” will serve as an agri-classroom for students and beginning farmers.
