IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2015) - FivePoint was the big winner at the 2015 SoCal Awards, taking home the night's top honor for Beacon Park at Great Park Neighborhoods -- named Master Planned Community of the Year. This is an unprecedented second year that FivePoint has been recognized with this award. In 2014, Pavilion Park, the first of the Great Park Neighborhoods, was honored.

One of the most prestigious awards programs for Southern California builders and developers, the SoCal Awards are presented annually by the Greater Sales & Marketing Council and the Building Industry Association of Southern California.

"It's an honor to be recognized by our peers for our work at Great Park Neighborhoods -- where hundreds of families are already enjoying vibrant neighborhoods that encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to connect and create a community. The quality and innovative design of Pavilion Park and Beacon Park will also be incorporated into the 688 acres of sports fields and public spaces that FivePoint is building at the Orange County Great Park -- adjacent to Great Park Neighborhoods," said Emile Haddad, FivePoint President and CEO.

Beacon Park's award underscores FivePoint's goal to design innovative neighborhoods up and down California. Beacon Park, the second of the Great Park Neighborhoods, showcases unique community design that promotes connectivity among residents that includes the authentic friendly ambiance of neighborhoods past and offers distinctive architecture that appeals to a diverse array of families.
