Great cities start with the developers and designers of great buildings – those who consider the building’s place and function as part of a bigger picture and sustainability for many years beyond completion of the project.
The SAPOA Property Development Awards for Innovative Excellence recognise top-quality design and functionality that set a benchmark for excellence in the property sector. The winners for 2018 were recently announced.

From WALLS & ROOFS in Africa magazine, congratulations to everyone involved!
