The Gates on Greenleaf Townhomes and Garden Cottages in Provenance Honored with National Design Awards

Shreveport, LA 2.22.22 –Two projects built in the Provenance Community by Shreveport’s Vintage Homes won three national awards at the 2021 Best in American Living™ Awards (BALA) hosted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). At the 2022 International Builders’ Show on February 9th in Orlando, Florida, the contractor won a GOLD Award for “The Gates on Greenleaf” Townhomes and a PLATINUM award for Phase I of the Garden Cottages on Woodberry Avenue. The Garden Cottages also brought home a Best in the South Central Region award as one of the top seven projects recognized nationwide!

Now in its 38th year, BALA recognizes outstanding achievement by builders and design professionals in all sectors of the residential housing industry including single-family production, custom, multifamily, affordable, remodeling, community and interiors. BALA is built on the principle that all great homes start with great design, no matter cost or size.

Buying a home is often the most significant purchase people will make in their lifetime, and BALA winners spotlight what building industry professionals need to know to set their project apart and hit the right mark with today’s discerning home buyers.

Both of these projects were so well-received that in 2022, Provenance will introduce more smaller footprint homes and townhomes to meet the demand of Shreveport residents. Subscribe for updates on our website and follow us on facebook and Instagram for all the latest updates.
