The National Apartment Association (NAA) has announced Anthem House as a 2023 NAA Excellence Awards winner. Anthem House won the Student Community of the Year. NAA’s annual Excellence Awards program recognizes outstanding performance and leadership across the rental housing industry – celebrating apartment communities, industry professionals and affiliated apartment associations that make unique contributions to the industry.
This follows from the December 2022 announcement by the North Central Florida Apartment Association (NCFAA) which awarded Anthem House the Student Community of the Year for North Central Florida. This recent NAA award is a national recognition.
“NAA extends congratulations to Anthem House for being selected as a winner of this year’s NAA Excellence Awards,” said Bob Pinnegar, NAA President and CEO. “This award speaks to your resolute effort and commitment to improving the rental housing industry. We thank you for your contributions and continued leadership.”
Courtney Gordon, RISE Chief Operating Officer, shared “We are immensely honored and proud to have been awarded the prestigious ‘Student Community of the Year.’ This remarkable achievement is a testament to our talented team members’ unwavering dedication and exceptional teamwork, reaffirming our relentless pursuit of excellence in creating exceptional living experiences for our residents.”
Anthem House was developed by RISE and delivered in 2021 in time for the fall semester lease-up. It is a 185 bed, boutique off-campus student apartment community featuring a mix of one- and two-bedroom units in Gainesville, FL serving students attending the University of Florida. A suite of modern and easy-access amenities provides an elevated experience for residents who enjoy a resort-style pool, 24-hour fitness center, secure package lockers, and many more apartment and community features.
To compete, and win, against strong national competition, Didier Louis, Anthem House’s General Manager, explained “The RISE way goes a long way. We are fully dedicated to ensuring the optimal living experience for our residents.
