London City Island triumphs again

Hot on the heels of winning Best Development of the Year at the RESI Awards, London City Island has triumphed again taking home the top prize at the prestigious London Evening Standard New Homes Awards.

London City Island won the Grand Prix award and the trophy for best regeneration project at a packed ceremony at the Dorchester Hotel last Friday (May 19th).

John Mulryan MD of Ballymore UK said:

We are delighted, once again, to be honoured for our bold vision. Winning the ‘best of best’ award among so many other great developments is hugely gratifying andmakes us even more determined to carry on delivering exciting and diverse new neighbourhoods”.

The Evening Standard described the scheme as “ambitious” because of the way it has transformed 12 acres of “gritty industrial land” into a new neighbourhood for east London.

The awards, hosted by comedian Romesh Ranganathan and presented by Team GB hockey star Kate Richardson-Walsh, was judged by Evening Standard readers and specialist architects.

London City Island also won Best New Place to Live at the London Planning Awards earlier this year.
