OBIE Awards 2022: Two Elevated Neighborhoods win Community of the Year!

October 28th, 2022
We’re proud to announce that at the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association’s 42nd annual OBIE Awards, held on October 22nd, The Providence Group took home not one but two “Community of the Year” awards! The Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council hosts this yearly event to recognize the very best in homebuilding from across Metro Atlanta, and to win even one of these esteemed awards in a year is a great honor. Two “Community of the Year” awards are proof positive that life in all of our neighborhoods is truly elevated.

The winning neighborhoods include: our single-family home neighborhood Idylwilde in Canton, and our mixed-use townhome community The Maxwell in Alpharetta. Read on and learn more about these two exceptional, elevated communities!

Detached Neighborhood of the Year 2022 - Idylwilde in Canton

Nestled in the desirable Hickory Flat area, with distinctive home designs and classic single-family neighborhood living, it’s hard to imagine how life could get better in Idylwilde. But, residents here will attest that the incredible amenities and the no-maintenance lawns help elevate the lifestyle high above all expectations. The homes of Idylwilde feature ranch and master-on-main designs, and some homes even include 3-car garages. 

Acres of natural green spaces are open to all residents for recreation and relaxation, with streams, sidewalks, and miles of trails to explore. Of course, when it comes to more traditional active amenities, there’s no shortage of those either. A pool with a tanning ledge is perfect for relaxing in the hot months, and the community garden also makes spring, summer, and (if you grow any edible plants) harvest time in early fall so much sweeter. Regardless of the season, striking up a friendly game with neighbors and friends is always easy at the neighborhood pickleball court. And, if you prefer perfectly climate-controlled comfort, the clubhouse here has plenty of seating, a full kitchen, and even fitness classrooms ideal for stretches, yoga, and more.

Move-in ready homes are available in this neighborhood right now, reach out to the attending agent at Idylwilde to learn more or schedule a visit to see the 2022 Detached Community of the Year for yourself.

Mixed-Use Neighborhood of the Year 2022 - The Maxwell in Alpharetta

Downtown Alpharetta is a thriving center of activity in a phenomenal Metro Atlanta location, and at The Maxwell, you’ll find our signature elevated lifestyle features alongside a unique retail destination! Townhomes and condos are available here, and to complement the stunning and stylish curb appeal and interior design of the homes, you’ll find an equally striking collection of boutiques, restaurants, and entertainment just steps away in The Maxwell Retail. 

Inside the neighborhood, a pool, bocce court, and outdoor grill give you great opportunities for relaxation with friends and family in the community. However, right across the access point for the city-wide Alpha Loop trail system attached to the neighborhood, you’ll discover an unprecedented selection of dining and shopping spots to enjoy. The Maxwell Retail offers restaurants such as Lily Sushi Bar and Rena’s Italian Fishery and Grill, as well as services and retail like Scenthound Grooming and The Happy Home. The central attraction here, though, is a fantastic concept bar/restaurant and entertainment destination: Fairway Social. Great eats, state-of-the-art virtual sports, live music and trivia, and - of course - a full putting course built right onto the gorgeous rooftop patio. Every visit to Fairway Social is an unforgettable experience, and you can have it any time right outside your door.

There are homes available for quick move-in here at The Maxwell, but availability is extremely limited! Schedule an appointment here to tour the 2022 Mixed-Use Neighborhood of the Year.
