DALLAS (August 31, 2020): Hillwood Communities, the award-winning master-planned community developer based in Dallas, won ten McSAM Awards Thursday during a virtual ceremony hosted by the Dallas Builders Association. The prestigious recognition included Developer of the Year as well Lifestyle Director of the Year and Best Overall Advertising Program for the developer’s Union Park community in Little Elm, Texas.

The McSAM Awards are given annually to builders, developers and associates who have made a significant and creative contribution in residential marketing through specific achievements in a given year. Hillwood Communities has received numerous McSAM Awards over the course of its 32-year history for a number of developments in its portfolio.

“We have always planned our communities with the resident in mind, looking ahead to anticipate their needs and wants, and designing them around that,” said Elaine Ford, senior vice president, Hillwood Communities. “I think that, along with our drive to create a sense of community, is the key to our success.”
Union Park is a Live Smart community designed and built to provide residents with an intentional lifestyle through quality construction, forward-thinking planning and uncommon amenities. Managed by FirstService Residential, the multi-generational community is nature focused featuring tree-lined greenbelts, trails, amenity ponds and 30-acre central park. Residents also enjoy outdoor pavilion for resident events, shaded bark park for furry friends, weekly fair at the food truck park, resort-style pool and an ADA-accessible playground.
Union Park also provides an on-site lifestyle manager who coordinates a lifestyle program, facilitating more than 300 events each year for residents and fostering relationships among residents, schools and local businesses, bringing a true sense of community to Union Park. For these reasons and many more Dee Davidson has been named the 2020 Lifestyle Director of the Year.
“Creating a quality lifestyle is at the heart of everything we do at Union Park,” said Dee Davidson, Union Park’s lifestyle manager. “Providing opportunities for regular, safe, quality interaction that builds relationships is essential to making this happen.”
Hillwood Communities continues to add amenities for Union Park residents this year with a new complex that features a pool, splash pad, indoor fitness center and outdoor sports courts.
