The South African company collected these distinctions at the International Property Awards – Africa and Arabia Chapter gala dinner, held at the 5-star London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square in June 2019. The International Property Awards are open to residential and commercial property professionals from around the world. Now in their 27th year, these awards celebrate the highest levels of achievement by companies operating in all sectors of the property and real estate industry. Judging focuses on design, quality, service, innovation, originality and commitment to sustainability. An International Property Award is a world-renowned mark of excellence.

In addition to these awards and recognition, Waterfall was also nominated for best mixed-use development in Africa. The highest scoring, five-star winners from each category in Africa, will automatically be put forward for re-judging against the five-star winners from Asia Pacific, Arabia, Europe, USA and the Americas, as well as the UK. Once the re-assessment has taken place, the 2019 International winners in each category will be acknowledged as the ‘World’s Best’. These winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London on 2 December 2019.

Last year, Waterfall not only won best mixed-use development in Africa for the fifth year running, but also received the top honours for the second year in a row, when named best international mixed-use development 2018/2019.
