The Frontier Project, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., was selected as a winner in the Best of L.A. Domestic category. The 14,000-square-foot demonstration building is designed to assist in educating resident consumers, commercial builders, and sustainable advocates about the latest methods and technologies in water, energy and site conservation.

The HMC-designed Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center Replacement Hospital, Downey, Calif., was selected as a winner in the Best of L.A. Healthcare category. This new medical campus is organized to provide a business and pedestrian-friendly face to the community, while creating an accessible, welcoming and healing environment within.

The LABC acknowledges that design and architecture play a critical role in economic development by attracting companies to do business in and around Los Angeles, and by providing an environment in which they can flourish. In total, 36 projects were honored at the awards program.
