McWhinney wins 2 national honors for Loveland development

LOVELAND — Judges for the 2023 PCBC Gold Nugget Awards have named McWhinney Real Estate Services Inc. and its Kinston residential community a Best on the Boards Site Plan Gold Nugget winner and the Kinston Hub an Award of Merit winner for Best Community Amenity in its annual competition, which honors architectural design and planning excellence; the contest  draws entries from throughout the United States and internationally.

Kinston, a new McWhinney residential village, is located on 625 acres within the Centerra master-planned community in Loveland. At full buildout, Kinston plans to deliver an estimated 2,900 homes, oriented around parks and trails, and will become a part of Centerra’s existing Certified National Wildlife community. Kinston’s first phase opened last year and offers single-family and paired homes starting in the $500,000s.

The community’s first amenity is the Kinston Hub, a 5,750-square-foot community facility and welcome center that includes a family-owned craft brewery and coffee shop, Mountain Cowboy Brewing Co. The Hub is part of the Kinston Commons, a central amenity campus that is planned to be home to fitness facilities, a swimming pool and splash pad, a demonstration garden and an event lawn.

“We are honored to have received these awards for Kinston,” said Kyle Harris, senior vice president for community development at McWhinney, in a prepared statement. “It was a true team effort, and we are so grateful for our partners DTJ Design, Symmetry Builders, Robert Hidey Architects, CWC Consulting and Creative License International for helping us fulfill our vision of creating a unique welcome center for both Kinston and Loveland residents to enjoy.”

The 2023 Gold Nugget Awards were presented May 24 in Anaheim, California. Now in its 60th year, the award competition honors design, development and planning achievements in community and home design, green-built housing, site planning, commercial, retail, mixed-use development and specialty housing categories. Winners this year were chosen from more than 600 entries from around the world.

Kinston Hub was also recently awarded three platinum awards in the 2022 Best in American Living Awards by the National Association of Home Builders.

Since 1991, McWhinney has planned and developed more than 6,000 acres of master-planned communities and 15 million square feet of vertical commercial and mixed-use properties throughout the Rocky Mountain region and the West Coast.
