The Al Hamra Village-based Waldorf Astoria won Best Tourism and Leisure Project UAE while the recently launched Bayti, meaning ‘my home’ in Arabic, picked up Best UAE residential Property of the Year.
The awards, in association with Mashreq, are the first awards programme in the GCC to recognise completed schemes with an independent judging panel consisting of members of the GCC Societies of Engineers evaluating the outcome of the construction process, rather than the process itself.
The accolades come hot on the heels of Al Hamra’s success at the International Property Awards where the Waldorf was again successful as Overall (Arabia) Regional Winner in the 2015 Hotel Architecture category.
The precursor to the International Property Awards, the Arabian Property Awards, Al Hamra was awarded a total of five titles including the ‘Retail Architecture’ category award for its Manar Mall, shopping complex, which is currently under an impressive renovation and expansion plan. Next in line were two awards for its popular Al Hamra Village community, which bagged the ‘Architecture Multiple Residence’ and ‘Golf Development’ categories.
The final award was given to Royal Breeze Residence, which scooped the ‘Residential High-Rise Development’ category award. The development offers a shoreline lifestyle spread across five residential towers with apartments and penthouses offering 42 up to 670-square metres of space, complemented by stunning Arabian Gulf or scenic golf course views.
Commenting on the quality of entries, Richard Thompson, Editorial Director, MEED, said: “We congratulate Al Hamra Real Estate Development for their outstanding achievements in project delivery and their invaluable contribution towards the continuing development of the projects sector in the GCC. Their strict adherence to quality standards have pushed the bar higher for project excellence and showcase the very best of what the region has to offer.”
