The Dubai Energy and Water Authority (Dewa) took home the Future Leisure and Tourism Award for its Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Panel Park Project, which will be the first and largest of its kind in the region, during the Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets last week. The awards celebrated the best in global real estate development and architecture in a ceremony and cocktail reception.

Contested among 38 entries from 11 countries, 13 winners were announced at the Armani Hotel in the Burj Khalifa, with projects from Asia taking home seven of the coveted awards. Of the seven Asian winners, China came out on top winning both the Mixed-Use Project Award for Built and Future, and the Built Retail Project Award. It was Singapore’s Ministry of Health, however, that stood out from the crowd, securing both the Community and Culture Project Award and the Built Sustainability Project Award for Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

Turkish developers were also back in full force, winning three of the 13 awards for projects based in Istanbul.

The Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets has gained major credibility in the international real estate industry over the past 13 years, and with a new judging process implemented this year, the awards have attracted hundreds of entries from across the globe.

“The awards submission process was revised for this year, resulting in uniformity and consistency of project information,” said Deepak Jain and George Katodrytis, judges at the awards. “The data submitted by companies competing in the awards has been extremely focused and we have seen a strong international participation across the emerging markets.

“The presentations delivered by shortlisted finalists were of a very high standard, and equal attention was given to design, economics and management. The finalist projects had the edge, however, by displaying a blend of new contemporary design with cultural context.”

The awards ceremony was among the highlights of last week’s Cityscape Global.
