45 projects shortlisted for Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets

DUBAI, August 15, 2017

A total of 45 projects have been shortlisted for the Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets by an independent panel of experts.

The list contains real estate and architecture innovators behind some of the world’s most renowned new projects.

The awards received more than 300 submissions – the highest in the Awards’ history – representing 13 countries including the UAE, US, Brazil, Egypt, India, Turkey and Hong Kong. The projects will compete in 11 categories at the upcoming award ceremony on September 11 at Conrad Hotel, Dubai, UAE.

The panel comprised 18 experts from prominent organisations including the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, Mace Macro International, and HLM Architects.

Christopher Seymour, regional development director and head of markets Mesa (Middle East/South Asia) at Mott MacDonald and one of the judges of the Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets 2017, said: “The quality of entrants continues to improve and this year we saw a welcome return of some of the big names in regional property development underlining the prominence of the Awards in our industry.

“Sustainability as a theme is as strong as ever but we are also seeing a much-needed increase in the planning and application of facilities management – this is something that the judging panel has been expecting to see emerge over a number of years and demonstrates continuing maturity in the clients’ portfolios where cost of operation is becoming just as important as the cost of build.”

Covering categories across sectors such as Commercial, Leisure & Hospitality, Community, Culture & Tourism, Residential, Retail, and Sustainability, the Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets offer international architects and leading real estate developers a platform to communicate a shared vision for the future, from culturally integrated city skylines to sustainable urban communities, said the organisers. - TradeArabia News Service
