The winners of the annual SAPOA Innovative Excellence in Property Development Awards were announced at the Annual SAPOA International Convention and Property Exhibition from the 19th to 21 May 2015 in Durban.

Ticking all the right boxes, the 2015 winners prove that South Africa’s property industry is thriving in the most innovative way possible. The South African built environment is a very loud place at the moment as iconic, aesthetically beautiful, sustainable and, above all, innovative buildings are screaming for attention – and they are being heard.

Once again the industry’s ‘Oscars of the property industry’ – the Innovative Excellence Awards – has once again recognised the country’s top buildings in terms of innovation, aesthetic appeal, sustainability, creativity, as well as game-changing architectural concepts.

In recognition of the importance of property development to the South African economy and the community which it serves, SAPOA has honoured those property innovators, developers, owners and built environment professionals who, through the quality of their products, have contributed significantly to the enhancement of the industry.

The winners of this year’s SAPOA Innovative Excellence in Property Development Awards are prime examples of how South Africa’s property industry is on par with the rest of the world in terms of top design, modern architecture, forward thinking sustainability and contemporary sexiness. “This year’s winners form part of the country’s latest and best concrete cream of the crop,” notes SAPOA Chief Executive Officer Neil Gopal.

“Due to a large amount of entries this year, we decided to include a Merit Award category,” highlights SAPOA Innovative Excellence in Property Development Awards Chairman Pieter Engelbrecht of Growthpoint Properties.
