ADDA Rise High Award 2016 for Apartment Community Initiatives is here!

by Krishanu

ADDA salute leaders, who become part of Apartment Associations. In spite of  their busy personal and work schedule, they take it up upon themselves to take on administrative positions in their apartment complex. Many Apartment Associations not only manage the day to operational challenges but also take extraordinary steps getting neighbors together and solving various issues in and around their apartment community.

Builder makes the High Rise.
The Community makes it Rise High..
The only award in India recognizing community initiatives

An Apartment Complex being like a mini India, also faces same issues of water, security, waste management, etc. as faced by a city or country on a larger scale. Today many smart communities are rising where neighbors are getting together to find innovative solutions to issues plaguing them.

Presenting to you the RISE HIGH AWARD 2016 which recognizes all such forward thinking Apartment Associations and Communities for their vision of building the NEIGHBORHOODS OF TOMORROW with their love for the neighborhood.

This coveted award has been recognizing and honoring the most forward thinking Apartment Complexes in India. This accolade is not only for the Apartment Association who of course spear heads any change, but also for the entire Apartment Community who adopted the change and made it a grand success, setting examples for the larger society to follow.

About the award

We take pride in all those initiatives which Apartment Associations are conducting in their communities. We will share all such stories with our larger audience once the contest is over. We are sure that these stories will be extremely inspiring for all Apartment Communities across the country and also the larger society.
