H.G. Fenton Company’s Evoc Hillcrest Project Shines With PCBC Merit Awards


H.G. Fenton Company is proud to announce that Evoc Hillcrest, a luxury apartment community in San Diego’s vibrant Hillcrest neighborhood, has been honored by the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC) with Awards of Merit in two prestigious categories: Multi-Family Community of the Year and Best Multi-Family Housing Community (100-200 units/acre).

Opened in July 2023, Evoc Hillcrest offers 82 beautifully designed apartment homes, featuring a mix of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units equipped with unique interior features, private outdoor spaces, and the latest energy and water-saving amenities in compliance with California’s CalGreen requirements. This tech-forward community redefines convenience and modern living with smartphone operated controls for front doors, amenity spaces, elevators and more, all with the touch of a button.

This exciting and innovative community was built by ECON Construction, with architectural and interior design by Smithton Architects and landscape design by Carson Douglas Landscape Architecture.

Adding to its accolades, EVOC Hillcrest has also recently received the prestigious Top Rated Community Award and Top Resident Satisfaction Award from SatisFacts, recognizing the collective satisfaction and experience of its residents.

“EVOC Hillcrest’s front door opens onto a truly special part of the neighborhood: it’s the gathering place every Sunday for the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market, where the LGBT Pride Parade begins, and where the neighborhood comes to party for Mardi Gras and Halloween,” said Dave Gatzke, Vice President of Development. “From the start we knew the building had to embrace the Hillcrest community and we’re honored by the Merit Award that recognizes the vibrant addition to this already-vibrant neighborhood. We are proud to have created an apartment community that offers the comfort of home, great spaces to gather with friends, and a dynamic urban lifestyle outside the front door.”

The PCBC Awards of Merit recognize the top vote recipients in each category, positioning EVOC Hillcrest as a finalist for the Grand Awards. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 19, 2024 at the Gold Nugget Award Gala in Anaheim, Calif.
