ELS Community Wins Housing Accolades
Equity LifeStyle Properties Inc. (ELS), owner and operator of high-quality resort communities across the United States, announced that its Mountain View manufactured home community in Henderson, Nev., was awarded the 2012 Land Lease Community of the Year Award (West) by the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI).
The award was announced April 17 at the 2013 MHI National Congress & Expo in Las Vegas, according to a news release.
Each year, MHI, the national trade organization representing all segments of the factory-built housing industry, distinguishes four of the top manufactured home communities in the United States with a “Community of the Year” award. MHI considers such aspects as the aesthetics of a community, community and industry involvement and its site plan when choosing recipients of the prestigious awards.
“We are very pleased that Mountain View was chosen for MHI’s prestigious award,” said Patrick Waite, senior vice president of operations at ELS. “The award is a testament not only to the quality of this property, but also the dedication of ELS’ on-site and regional management.”
Mountain View Manufactured Home Community offers residents proximity to outstanding parks, golf courses and spectacular mountain views. In addition to numerous clubs and activities, the community’s resort-style amenities include swimming pools, fitness centers, tennis courts and clubhouses; Mountain View is also located 10 minutes from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas.
Based in Chicago, ELS is the nation's largest operator of RV resorts and manufactured housing communities.
