Regarded as the most prestigious programme of its kind within the South African commercial real estate industry.


The SAPOA Property Development Awards for Innovative Excellence acknowledge and recognize some of the most innovative property developments that contribute towards the enhancement of our built environment.

SAPOA is excited to once again invite entries for this year’s instalment of the awards.

There are 13 categories which can be entered, namely: Commercial Office Development, Corporate Office Development, Industrial Development, Innovative Award, Interiors Award, International Development, Mixed-use Development, Other Developments, Refurbishments, Residential Developments, Retail Developments - Large Regional Mall (More than 25,000m²), Retail Developments - Small Boutique (Less than 25,000m²) and Rural & Small-town Development. Each category has very strict criteria that need to be met. The award per category will be made based on the overall excellence of the development having regard to these criteria or property solutions.

According to Zinon Marinakos, Chairperson of the SAPOA Property Development Awards for Innovative Excellence, the team of judges are constantly interrogating the categories and improving the criteria to ensure that all building types are acknowledged. “The entry categories this year vary from Corporate and commercial Office Developments to Industrial, International, Residential and Mixed-use Developments. We have recently introduced categories for Rural & Small-town Developments, Retail Refurbishments, and Interiors Awards,” he says.

In addition, all entries will also be evaluated for Overall Awards in the categories Overall Transformation Award, Overall Heritage Award, Overall Green Sustainability Award, Overall Innovative Award and Overall Award respectively.

The closing date for entries is Monday 23 March 2020.

All submissions will be featured in the 6th Edition of the 2020 SAPOA Innovative Excellence coffee table book. In addition, entries and winners per category will be showcased, announced and celebrated at the 2020 SAPOA Annual convention and Property Networking, taking place from 3-5 June 2020 at Sun City, North West Province.
