Beeler Canyon Project Receives the Go-Ahead From San Diego Council
Trieste, managed by ConAm Management Corp. of San Diego, was the best of the biggest apartment complexes in the county this past year, the San Diego County Apartment Association has decided.
The award in the 201 units and up category for the San Diego apartment complex was one of several made recently by the apartment association’s award of excellence committee. It is part of an annual recognition tradition for the best managers, said Scott A. Blech, executive director of the association.
Santa Fe Court Apartments in San Diego, managed by MS Browar Development Co., was the first-place winner in the one- to 50-unit category, while Amber Trail Apartments in San Diego, managed by Fairfield Properties Inc. of San Diego, won in the 51- to 100-unit category.
Oakwood Mission Valley, managed by R & B; Realty Group of San Diego, took home first-place honors in the 101- to 200-unit category. The winner in the over-25-years-old category was Casa La Mesa in La Mesa, run by Sunrise Management Co., of San Diego, he added.
La Posada Apartments in San Ysidro, which the new owners renovated, won in the repositioned property of the year category. Cuatro Properties Inc. of San Diego manages the property.
“The scope of work for the renovation kept increasing as capital funds continued to increase,” the apartment association said in its commendation. “The 25-unit community is a jewel in the rough, rather than a contributor to surrounding blight.”
The apartment association also recognized several individuals as well. Susan York of San Diego-based Trilar Management Group, who is the community manager for Vista Creekside Apartments in Vista, won the residential manager of the year award in the 1- to 50-unit category.
Other winners were Deborah Carrigan of ConAm Management Corp. in the 51- to 100-unit category, and Diane Shepard of Sunrise Management Co. in the 101- to 200-unit category. Lola Doolin-Cross of JPI Development Corp. of San Diego won in the over 201-unit category.
The organization also recognized outstanding maintenance people. Larry Copeland of Capital Growth Properties Inc. of La Jolla was named maintenance technician of the year and Herman Schledwitz of Pro-Star Management Co. of San Diego won the maintenance supervisor of the year award.
Among the other winners in the competition were Lee G. Harvey of Professional Real Estate Management of San Diego, who won an industry achievement award.
Renee Savage of Capital Growth Properties Inc. won the president’s award, while Kay Chiaravalle of ConAm Management Corp. received the property supervisor of the year award, Blech said.

Plan Approved: The city of San Diego late last month approved the creation of a master plan for a large piece of land set for development east of Scripps Ranch and south of Poway. The Corky McMillin Cos. and Pacific Land and Investment Co. are planning two developments in the Beeler Canyon area, said Julia Simms, a spokeswoman for the McMillin organization.
The McMillin development, called Sycamore Estates, will be built on 2,100 acres.
