UK Property Awards success for Aberdeen PRS development
Aberdeen’s first private rental scheme development has been named the best residential high rise development in the UK round of the International Property Awards, at which the company received a total of nine prizes.
Forbes Place at Stoneywood by developer Dandara received a further two 5-Star awards at the ceremony in London including best apartment (North-east Scotland) for its studio property type and best development marketing (Scotland).
Dandara also received a 5-Star award for the three bedroom Cherry bungalow house style at its Hazelwood development in Aberdeen, which was named best residential property (North-east Scotland). Its Knights Wood development in Kent also received a five-star title.
Having secured five of the coveted 5-Star awards, Dandara will now progress to the “world’s best” round of the awards, which is judged later this year.
Dandara also received Highly Commended awards for two other communities in Aberdeen. The Beech Walk phase of the Hazelwood development in Aberdeen’s West End, was recognised in the residential development (North-east Scotland) category and the townhouse at Stoneywood estate received the prize for architecture single residence (North-east Scotland).
Dandara received a further two Highly Commended awards for developments in Kent and Isle of Man.
Gavin Wyley, managing director of Dandara in Aberdeen, said: “Our first residents began moving into their new apartments at Forbes Place in Aberdeen just a matter of weeks ago, so to be able to refer to it as an award winning development at this stage is a huge achievement.
“These awards are a fantastic acknowledgement of Dandara’s commitment to providing the highest possible standard of living to all our customers, whether they’re looking for their forever home or flexible, high quality rental accommodation.
“We look forward to representing the UK among the world’s most highly regarded property developers at the final judging stage later this year.”
The UK Property Awards are judged by a panel of more than 70 highly respected experts from all over the world, chaired by two active members of the House of Lords: Lord Caithness and Lord Best.
