“Being named for Best in Region in the Pacific and a Platinum winner for Infill Community of the Year on SoHay, our project with Taylor Morrison and the city of Hayward, was an extremely rewarding moment. This transformational project has truly catalyzed development within South Hayward, and we believe the industry recognition BALA has given this project is inspiring other transformational projects across the United States, leading to the development of more revived and thriving, connected communities.”
