Civita Honored as “Best Urban Master-Planned Community of the Year” at the San Diego Building Industry Association’s Icon Awards

Civita was acclaimed the “Best Urban Master-Planned Community of the Year” at the 2019 San Diego Building Industry Association Icon Awards recently. Civita is transforming a 70-year-old sand and gravel quarry into a vibrant community where residences, village retailers and businesses are interspersed with parklands, open space, pedestrian-friendly streets and walkways.

Civita has become a national example of sustainability, walkability and sophisticated architectural design. The residential neighborhoods at Civita have won approximately 50 local, regional and national honors.

The Civita Recreation Center, a sprawling 2.5-acre resort-style rec center with lagoon pool and lap pool, an expansive fitness center and several multi-use areas, was honored as the “Best Community Amenity” by the Icon Awards. The center was designed by Bassenian Lagoni Architects and Lifescapes International.

Civita was also honored for the “Best Overall Advertising/Marketing Campaign,” an award it has earned several times.
