EuroCity, Gibraltar’s premier mixed-use real estate project has beaten off strong competition to win six top accolades at the European Property Awards.
Developed by Bentley Investments, the landmark 366-home development was honoured at a glitzy awards ceremony on the 26th October – the most prestigious in Europe - held at The Royal Lancaster hotel in London. The awards are judged by an independent panel of 80 industry experts, chaired by Lord Caithness, Lord Best, The Earl of Liverpool, and Lord Thurso - all members of the House of Lords in the UK Parliament.
Chestertons was appointed development consultant and main agent on the project over two years ago whilst Chestertons’ CEO Mike Nicholls also acts as financial consultant. The first two phased releases of the development sold out within just weeks of launch.
The project won 5* awards for Best High Rise Residential Development; Best Mixed Use Residential Development; Best Development Marketing; Best Residential Interior; Best Residential High Rise Architecture and Best Mixed Use Architecture. This is testament to the 360-degree holistic approach to the development, which combines best-in-class architecture, sustainability, interior design, technology and marketing to stunning effect.
Evgeny Cherepakhov, Chairman of Bentley Investments, comments: “We are honoured that EuroCity has been recognised at this highly prestigious ceremony. The project is the culmination of years of planning, where we have drawn upon global influences to help bring a number of firsts to Gibraltar, from the virtual reality marketing suite to the services and amenities within the development itself, which we believe will raise the bar for development here in future. The response to the development so far has been overwhelming on all levels, from sales success to industry recognition, and we look forward to the future as the project gets closer to completion.”
Mike Nicholls added: “We are proud to be part of the team creating such a prestigious and already successful development. Blending our skills with other best of class professionals has contributed immensely to the project’s clean sweep of the Gibraltar awards.”
Designed by the award-winning British Manser Practice of Architects, led by Jonathan Manser, EuroCity is situated in Gibraltar’s central business district, punctuated by three sustainable towers – Carrara, Murano and Porcelana - including the territory’s tallest at 22 storeys, with views towards Spain, Africa and the Rock. The generously proportioned high specification apartments will sit amongst landscaped raised piazzas designed by RHS Chelsea Flower Show winner Andy Sturgeon along with a range of amenities including 24 hour concierge, car parking, a gym and three swimming pools including a 25m Olympic lap pool. There will also be an on-site property management company, as well as a new concierge app that will allow residents to do everything from their fingertips. At ground level, swathes of high quality retail and commercial space will help to deliver a pioneering destination for families, businesses and professionals alike.
