Now in their 31st year, the International Property Awards celebrate the very best projects and professionals in the industry worldwide, covering the regions of Asia Pacific, Africa and Arabia, Europe, USA and the Americas, as well as the UK. Judging focuses on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability. The highest scoring, five-star winners from each category in Africa will be automatically put forward for re-judging against the five-star winners in the other regions of the world. Following this re-assessment, the 2023 International winners in each category will be identified as the ‘World’s Best’. These winners will be announced at a grand gala presentation dinner to be held at the Savoy Hotel in London on 22 February 2024.
Waterfall City has to date won Best Mixed-use Development in Africa eight times in nine years and Best International Mixed-use Development five times in six years. It is the second time that it has garnered the Best Developer Website in South Africa award.
