Multi award-winning Beal Homes has earned national acclaim at one of the housebuilding industry’s premier events.
The accolade is the latest recognition for the stunning transformation of the Fruit Market waterfront area, delivered by Beal working with partners Wykeland Group in the Wykeland Beal joint venture.
It comes just days after Wykeland Beal won the Gold award for Best Mixed-Use Development for the Fruit Market in the national WhatHouse? Awards. Wykeland Beal also took the Silver award in those awards in the Best Regeneration Scheme category.
The Housebuilder Awards are held in partnership with the Home Builders Federation (HBF), which represents the housebuilding industry in England and Wales, and the National House Building Council (NHBC), the UK’s leading provider of warranty and insurance for new homes.
The black tie awards ceremony was held at the InterContinental London Hotel by the River Thames in Greenwich. It was hosted by comedian, writer and actor Tom Allen and brought together hundreds of leaders and professionals from the UK housebuilding industry.
The Fruit Market was recognised in a category, sponsored by building materials manufacturer and supplier British Gypsum, that attracted entries for regeneration projects across the country. The judges were impressed by how the high-quality residential development delivered by Beal “combines sustainable city living with a vibrant, mixed-use community”.
The £20m development of 105 mews-style homes, arranged around four private courtyards, has created an attractive and characterful neighbourhood featuring a fusion of traditional and contemporary styles.
The development has been hugely popular, with residents enjoying the urban lifestyle and energetic vibe familiar to other major cities, with independent shops, restaurants, bars and galleries all on their doorstep.
The development is now almost complete, with just a few homes still available in the final phase, Finkle Quarter.
Beal Chief Executive Richard Beal said: “The Fruit Market regeneration and the residential development within it have now been recognised locally, regionally and nationally as an outstanding example of successful urban development and place-making.
“With our friends at Wykeland Group, we’re proud to have driven forward so much positive change in the Fruit Market and created a unique urban village, with a fantastic residential community at its heart.”
