Sinclair Way Receives Two Awards at the FCBIA Awards of Excellence Reception

Frederick County Building Industry Association hosted its annual Awards of Excellence (AOE) Reception honoring outstanding individuals, organizations and companies. “Members can submit their best project to be measured against the standards of excellence.”

Conifer Realty, LLC is happy to announce that their joint venture with Interfaith Housing Alliance, Inc. (IHA), Sinclair Way, received two awards at the 2018 Frederick County Building Industry Association Awards of Excellence Annual Reception on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Sinclair Way is a brand new, mixed-income rental community in historic downtown Frederick, MD. The development received the award for Best Multifamily Project and for Best Integration of Historical Feature.

“Without the support of Frederick and the State of Maryland, we would not be standing here today celebrating this wonderful apartment community,” said Sam Leone, Regional Vice President of Conifer Realty. “Interfaith Housing Alliance and Conifer are committed to increasing the supply and quality of affordable housing available in Maryland, for families, for seniors and disabled individuals.”

Bruce Zavos, President at Zavos Architecture + Design, commented, “Sinclair Way is an excellent example of what can be accomplished with vision from the developer, support from the city and state agencies and the creativity of the design team.” He added, “Creating affordable housing so that residents can work and live in the City of Frederick is something all involved should be very proud of.”

This community is a shining example of the IHA, Conifer, the City of Frederick, Frederick County, and the State, working together to address the undeniable need for additional affordable housing in Frederick.

Sinclair Way is situated on 1.6 acres of in-fill property between West Patrick and West South Streets, two main, east-west, arterial roads through the City. The development consists of the construction of 69 apartments in seven buildings, and the historic renovation of two vacant buildings into two apartments. Due to its location within the Frederick Town Historic Preservation District, the entire development was subject to a historic committee review. The careful placement and mix of building types, transformed the property from a vacant, overgrown lot, into an attractive housing community that reconnects the local community and historic fabrics of the overall downtown.
