Awards were given out for each region’s most impressive developments for a variety of property types, including high-rises, leisure facilities, shopping centers, public service buildings, office complexes, apartments and homes. The winning companies were announced as either a ‘Highly Commended’ or ‘Five Star’ winner and presented with special plaques during the awards ceremony.

The Five Star winners were placed under further examination and just one winner per category from each of the four geographical regions was named a regional winner, also known as an international nominee. The regional winners qualified to be evaluated against other regional winners from Asia Pacific, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the UK to find the ‘World’s Best’ for each category. With the Americas Property Awards hosted in conjunction with the International Property Awards, the Americas international nominees only had to wait until the end of the evening for the highly anticipated announcements of the International Property Awards global winners.

Stuart Shield, president of the International Property Awards, said, “It was an honor to present the Americas development winners with their well-deserved awards. These professionals are creating world-class buildings and homes that enhance the landscape of their countries while applying innovative techniques and using sustainable products. The Americas region covers a wide geographical area and a variety of cultures and incomes, but all the winners have one thing in common: high quality and innovation presented in their winning projects.”

The Americas Property Awards are part of the long established International Property Awards, the world’s richest competition when measured by the value of the projects entered.
