Cypress Receives BIA Icon Award for Best Affordable Housing Project

In The News |

We are proud to announce that Cypress has received the Icon Award in the Best Affordable Housing category. The Building Industry Association (BIA) Icon Awards of San Diego recognizes the industry’s most outstanding contributors (builder, trade, and design professionals) who have distinguished themselves by working hard to deliver their best for the betterment of our industry.  

For San Diego’s East Village, an area with a rising homeless population and limited affordable housing options, Carrier Johnson + CULTURE worked with non-profit Affirmed Housing Group and the San Diego Housing Commission to build 62 new units of permanent supportive housing with an artful aesthetic comparable to those of nearby market-rate apartment buildings. The design team delivered a residence with a high-end look to match the client groups’ vision while managing the challenges of a limited budget.

Congrats to the entire team!
