Jaren won another award for his development in the Avenues of downtown Salt Lake City.  His planned unit development won Best Subdivision Plan by the League of Cities and Towns.  This town home project is named Ensign Place and was built in an older, existing area, designed to give the impression of having been built back in the same time as the neighborhood.  The twin-style town homes were built to give the appearance of being a single family home and had the garages face the rear so no doors are visible from the street.
