NEO Bankside has been honoured as an exemplary project by the prestigious Council of Tall Buildings in the Urban Habitat (CTBUH). As a finalist in two categories of this year’s highly competitive Tall Building Awards, the iconic South Bank residential scheme’s inclusion alongside some of the most innovative developments across Asia, Australasia and Europe is a testament to its exceptional quality.
The CTBUH Awards recognise projects that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability at the highest and broadest level. NEO Bankside has been listed as a finalist for the Asia, Australasia and Europe regions, as well as for the Urban Habitat award. Finalists will be showcased in the CTBUH’s 2014 awards book and at an exhibition during its annual awards symposium in Chicago on 6 November 2014.
Jointly developed by Native Land and Grosvenor, the multi-award winning NEO Bankside has become one of London’s most well-known new developments. The unique set of four residential pavilions, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and ranging from 12 to 24 storeys in height, set new standards in design excellence and residential living.
Alasdair Nicholls, Chairman & Chief Executive of Native Land, said:
“The CTBUH Tall Building Awards is one of the highest honours that can be bestowed on a high-rise development and we are proud that NEO Bankside is in such esteemed international company. It is global recognition for NEO Bankside’s project team who have pushed the boundaries of residential property and worked tirelessly to deliver this once in a lifetime scheme.”
NEO Bankside has won numerous awards since its inception including ‘Best Landscaped Development’ at the Sunday Times British Home Awards, ‘Development of the Year’ at Property Week’s 2012 RESI Awards and ‘Best Development’ at the 2011 International Property Awards.
