The Sustainable City – the Middle East’s first fully fledged sustainable development –won five top awards at the first edition of the International Property Awards – Dubai (IPAD) 2018
The Sustainable City bettered its own track-record of winning it big at the Arabian Property Awards, having won four awards last year. With this year’s honours, it is being recognised for the third consecutive year as the ‘Best Residential Development’ and ‘Best Residential Property’, and for the second year running as ‘Best Mixed-Use Development’ and ‘Best Public Service Development.’
Faris Saeed, CEO of Diamond Developers – the property and real estate developer behind The Sustainable City – said: “This is indeed a remarkable honour for us, as we are being recognised as the Best Sustainable Development along with the other awards. Promoting sustainable living is central to our ethos, and we have set the benchmarks in developing and managing a fully sustainable living environment that brings incredible value for our residents. This is in line with the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and Dubai Plan 2021 to build a smart and sustainable city, and to secure a clean and green environment for our future generations. The awards are an inspiration for us, and encourage us to further focus our efforts to committedly pursue international best practices in sustainable living.”
The Sustainable City has earlier won top awards including the ‘Happiest Community’ at the inaugural Gulf Real Estate Awards for two consecutive years.
