SAN DIEGO (May 12, 2020) --- The ICON high-rise, located in downtown San Diego, was awarded Community Association of the Year at the Community Associations Institute’s 2020 Awards Gala for the San Diego chapter. FirstService Residential has managed the building since 2005. 

Composed of 327 residential units, 4 separate buildings and nearly 700 residents, ICON is located in the heart of downtown San Diego. The community features multiple amenities, including a skybox, which overlooks Petco Park. The association hosts multiple resident events in the skybox, including Super Bowl parties, and monster truck rally and motocross viewings.

“I am extremely proud of ICON winning Community Association of the Year from CAI. We could not have won the award without the hard work and dedication from the FirstService Residential team, and I’m grateful for our long standing relationship with them,” said Jamie DeBonis, president of ICON Community. “I believe I can speak for all residents when I say that ICON is truly a great community to live in.”

ICON was awarded Community Association of the Year because of their high resident engagement and a 5-star service approach as well as completion of several major projects (including plumbing and remodels).

“We’re thrilled to receive this award from the CAI San Diego chapter, as it validates the strong partnership we’ve developed with the board and residents over the past 15 years,” said Mark Simmons, general manager at ICON. “Through that partnership, our phenomenal on-site associates and our strong support network through FirstService Residential, we’ve been able to truly elevate the resident experience and ICON’s reputation in the downtown San Diego market.”
