Kiawah River Wins Grand Award in Builder’s Choice Awards for Urban and Community Planning

Kiawah River has been honored with the Grand Award in Urban and Community Planning at the 2022 Builder’s Choice Design Awards by Builder Magazine! The theme of this year’s awards program was innovation. We are so grateful that our community’s thoughtful master plan and sustainability initiatives were acknowledged for the singular Grand Award bestowed on a master planned community by one of the most respected and well-known publications in the industry.   

As the region’s only agrihood, Kiawah River truly embraces its natural riverside setting and was created as a green community that employs principles of sustainability, with only half of the property’s 2,000 acres planned for development. One Builder’s Choice Design juror says Kiawah River “feels stitched into its natural element,” while another noted, “there’s a lot of really appealing things about this project.”  

The community is a maritime oasis of residential, future retail and hospitality offerings with custom and semi-custom homes that feature an innovating blend of the sea island aesthetic and ideals of quality green building. 

We are extremely proud of this accomplishment and are so grateful for the builders, architects, designers, farmers, artists, residents and many others that work so hard every day to make Kiawah River a beautiful place to live.
