Granary Wharf scoops top property awards

GRANARY Wharf, the waterside development in Leeds city centre, has picked up two Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Pro-Yorkshire awards and a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Northern region award which recognises excellence in architecture.

The development won the Regeneration award at the RICS Pro-Yorkshire awards earlier this year, before going on to beat 69 other entries from across the region to win the top prize of 'Project of the year’, with judges highlighting the ‘outstanding ethos and build quality’ of the development.

Chairman of the RICS regional judging panel, Colin Harrop, said: “Granary Wharf is an outstanding example of regeneration which illustrates what highly skilled and talented people can do in Yorkshire and Humberside.

“It fulfilled not only the criteria for the regeneration award, but also scored highly in all of the other categories, making it highly deserving of its project of the year honour.”

The development, which boasts two buildings of apartments and the impressive Mint Hotel, as well as restaurants, a pub and a coffee shop, is fast becoming a vibrant community, foodie hot spot and all round desirable location. On top of that, Granary Wharf has some fantastic features, including its restored industrial heritage features and canal dock, all part of the project’s restoration and regeneration of the area.

Dara Mulcahy, chief operating officer at ISIS, the company responsible for the development, said, ‘This is fantastic recognition from such prestigious institutions of the innovative design and build of the development and the successful regeneration of this area – which from the outset was a key aim for ISIS and the teams of architects that worked on the scheme.

“Not only do the awards recognise the quality of design, but the overall impact the development has had on the area which is now a real community.”

Granary Wharf will now compete with the 89 other winning developments from across the country and eight from the EU for the internationally renowned Stirling Prize, the most prestigious architecture award in the UK. Granary Wharf will also be entered into the national RICS Awards, where it will compete against winning projects from other regions across the country.
