Recognising distinction in Property Development through the SAPOA Property Development Awards for Innovative Excellence
Regarded as the most prestigious programme of its kind within the South African commercial real estate industry, the SAPOA Property Development Awards for Innovative Excellence acknowledge and recognize some of the most innovative property developments that contribute towards the enhancement of our built environment.
SAPOA is excited to once again invite entries for this year’s instalment of the awards.
There are 13 categories which can be entered, namely: Commercial Office Development, Corporate Office Development, Industrial Development, Innovative Award, Interiors Award, International Development, Mixed-use Development, Other Developments, Refurbishments, Residential Developments, Retail Developments - Large Regional Mall (More than 25,000m²), Retail Developments - Small Boutique (Less than 25,000m²) and Rural & Small-town Development.
