Summit Properties wins major awards

Summit Properties of Baltimore and Charlotte, N.C., won three national awards this year in the "Pillars of the Industry" competition conducted by the National Association of Home Builders.

At a banquet Friday during the home builders' annual convention in Las Vegas, Summit's property management arm, Summit Management Co., was named "Property Management Co. of the Year."

Summit's 196-unit Waterloo Place apartment complex in Mount Vernon received the Best Midrise Apartments award, and its 202-unit Ashton Woods Apartments in Howard County received the Best Garden Apartments award.

The awards are given annually to recognize firms that demonstrate commitment to "the highest standards in multi-family construction" and promote "a positive image of the multi-family housing industry."

Waterloo Place and Ashton Woods were both completed in the fall of 1991 and are fully leased. David Furman Architecture was the lead architect for both projects.

American Properties Inc. of Columbia has appointed Douglas Magill to be principal and director of its New Homes Marketing Group.

Founded in 1984, American Properties is a full-service real estate development company with offices in Columbia and Ellicott City.
