2017 Award Winners



Affordable, Single-Family Detached or Attached


Tapestry Square


Grand Rapids, Michigan

Architect/Designer | Multiple

Builder | Eastbrook Homes

Developer | Inner City Christian Federation

Inner City Christian Federation designed a mixed-use, mixed-income, mixed-opportunity community that complements the transition from downtown to residential neighborhoods. Brick, stone, and cement-board siding, large windows, and high-quality finished interiors create beauty everyone loves. All buildings have a timeless aesthetic that feels traditional in scale, massing, and finish. Front porches, zero-lot-line multifamily buildings with transparent ground floors, and interconnected sidewalks create a neighborhood for pedestrians and single-family homes adjacent to 3-story apartment buildings which follow historic development patterns. A shared parking lot in the interior of the block and alley-access parking meet all resident parking needs.
