37 real estate projects from 15 countries, will take away a Cityscape Global Awards 2015 trophy from the ceremony on September 8, at Conrad Hotel, Dubai.
Sustainability is an underlining trend at this year’s Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets, across all 13 awards categories.
Holley Chant, Executive Director, KEO International Consultants, and a member of the judging panel, said that sustainability is critical to the success of humanity’s future and real estate developers have an important part to play in its realisation.
“The quality of the nominations in the Sustainability category for Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets this year were fantastic,” said Chant. “Projects seemed to really understand that the importance of a sustainable building is not just about being green, but also about serving as a great project from a real estate fundamentals’ point of view.
“We have developments that have truly made a positive social, economic and cultural impact on their communities, as well as being environmentally sound.
“With sustainable design now a code requirement in the UAE, designers have had to accept this level as the new standard and as a result are challenging themselves even more to create better and more aspirational designs which differentiate their expertise and products in the market.”
